Michigan Stadium Bowl Painting

Overview

Michigan Stadium, an iconic brick and concrete structure, was constructed in 1927. In 1949 and 1998 the capacity was increased with the addition of permanent steel stands, and capacity increased in 2010 with the completion of the Michigan Stadium Renovation and Expansion Project. This project will remove existing paint from the stadium bowl top and underside, repair or replace corroded steel, and repaint these areas and associated steel structure with a corrosion-resistant paint to protect the metal for many years. The project will include appropriate lead mitigation methods since much of the existing painted surface contains lead-based paint.
