NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean joined Tennessee Titans Executive Vice President Don MacLachlan at a news conference Wednesday at LP Field to unveil a $25 million improvement project for the stadium.

Some of the planned improvements include new HD scoreboards, fan zones and a new video control room, among other renovations.

"These renovations and improvements are a good investment in an important and highly visible public facility," Dean said.

He continued, "They not only will enhance the fan experience, but these improvements protect the city's investment in the stadium in a way that protects Nashville's taxpayers."

MacLachlan said in a release some of the improvements discussed Wednesday were in the original plans for the stadium several years ago, but were removed for budgeting reasons.

According to MacLachlan, several immediate improvements, such as new high-definition LED video screens on the north and south scoreboards, a new sound system that would employ 800 additional speakers and two banks of elevators to serve upper deck ticket holders, among other improvements will be made by the opening pre-season game of 2012.

Those upgrades will come from a $2 per ticket user fee that is already in place.

The Nashville Sports Authority and the Metro Council each have to approve the immediate renovations.

If approved, construction will begin in February 2012 and be complete by August.
