The Orlando Citrus Bowl is undergoing a near-complete reconstruction that began in late January. The new building will include a new lower bowl with chair-back seating and six more inches of legroom, a wider two-level concourse with more concession and restroom facilities and brand-new HD video displays. The construction will reach substantial completion in November to host the Florida Blue Florida Classic, with additional finishing touches scheduled for early 2015.
