KU ponders major renovation of football stadium

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger has revived plans for a major renovation of the University of Kansas football stadium.

The Kansas City Star reports that Zenger acknowledges a Memorial Stadium project would require a massive fundraising effort.

No budget or timetable for the renovation has been set. But Zenger says Kansas began the design process for an eventual renovation last month.

The early work on the project comes as construction continues on a new, $39 million complex in west Lawrence for soccer, softball and track and field. The complex is expected to host the Kansas Relays in the spring, and its opening would allow Kansas to remove the track around the football field at Memorial Stadium, a possible first step in a larger project.
