IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The University of Iowa is moving forward with plans for a $90 million renovation of Kinnick Stadium.

The Iowa Board of Regents on Thursday approved the design and financing plan for the project, which will renovate one of the stadium’s end zones.

The enhancements to the north end zone include a second deck for seating, new restrooms, expanded concourses and improved concessions. The project will begin after the 2016 season and be completed prior to the 2019 season.

Kinnick Stadium, which has hosted the Hawkeyes since 1929, last received an overhaul in 2006 that was highlighted by a new press box.

The stadium’s capacity is expected to remain around 70,000.
