PASADENA ( KTLA) -- The Pasadena City Council approved a $152 million facelift for the iconic Rose Bowl Monday.
The planned upgrades for the 88-year-old stadium include a new scoreboard, widened tunnels for easier exiting, more concession stands and bathrooms.
There will also be more luxury suites and premium seating.
Construction is set to begin January 2011 and has been scheduled to run in different phases to avoid disrupting any college football games.
The renovations, funded mostly by city-issued bonds, are expected to take about three years to complete.
