UT study focuses on closing south endzone at football stadium

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The University of Texas is carrying out a feasibility study looking into the completion of the south end of Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium.

The university will evaluate the renovation needs of existing seating throughout the stadium as they try to improve the game day experience for fans, according to Athletics Director Steve Pattererson.

The renovations would include permanently enclosing the south endzone, not only adding more seating, but also more suites.

The athletics department is also looking into parking south of the stadium that will be displaced by the new medical school, and will get input from the Longhorn foundation.

The project will move forward if the university determines the outcome of the analysis is favorable for expansion. It would also need final approval from administration and regents.

The last major renovation at the stadium was in 2008 during the north endzone expansion project.
