Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, along with members of the city council and the park board, celebrated the competition of a three-year, $57 million renovation of the Cotton Bowl in Fair Park. The new changes include the additions of more than 16,000 new seats, expanded concourses, concession areas, restroom facilities, a new entrance, colorful signage, team locker rooms, coaches locker rooms, post-game media center, a jumbo HD screen, club seating, live-truck parking, and more.

Anyone would have to say that $57 million to do renovations for the Cotton Bowl is a lot of money. At least they got the renovations done on it that they really wanted to do. Even if it did cost what it did to do it all, it was well worth it in the end. Now the stadium is all fixed up and in the condition that it should be.
