Video: $500M renovation continues at Dolphins stadium

Stadium renovation is on pace for season opener in September.

The National Football League's Miami Dolphins are close to completing a three-year renovation of their stadium. The $500 million project includes the installation of a 14-acre shade canopy.

Call it an opportunity to show off a new, shiny, half-billion toy. Call it a chance to silence alarm bells. Whatever you call it, the Dolphins swung open the doors to their stadium Thursday, giving the media a hard-hat tour that made it easier to envision what the finished product will look like with a canopy in place this fall.

Much of the framework for the canopy is in place, thanks to a dozen large cranes standing where the Dolphins hope Ryan Tannehill soon will be throwing touchdown passes to Jarvis Landry. Although it required imagination to picture football played on a field that currently doesn’t exist in 91 days, Bill Senn, senior vice president of stadium renovations, sought to outline why the Dolphins are confident the facility will be ready for the Sept. 1 preseason home game against Tennessee.
