DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke says some more renovation projects at Wallace Wade Stadium will begin after the regular season ends in November.

Athletic director Kevin White said Wednesday that the improvements include construction of a new five-story press box tower, installation of a new video scoreboard and other concourse enhancements.

The privately financed projects are part of a plan to modernize the 85-year-old stadium and are scheduled to be completed in 2016.

The school’s Board of Trustees approved their design and authorized construction last weekend.

Duke will replace its existing press box with a five-story tower that includes 22 luxury suites and a dining room that will seat more than 300 people.

The school also will install a video board that’s more than twice as big as the existing one.
