Georgia Tech fans may notice a few new improvements to the game-day environment at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
The athletic department replaced the old board, installed in 2009, with one that will have improved resolution. The old board, on top of showing its age, was emitting a signal that interfered with cell-phone coverage around the stadium and drew the attention of the FCC. Ribbon boards have also been replaced.
Restrooms have been improved, with more baby-changing stations, paper-towel dispensers and restroom attendants.
Fans can also enjoy an expanded option of concessions, including a rotation of local fare on the west side of the stadium. Chick-fil-A and Twisted Taco will now be available in the north mezzanine level. More beverage options, including lemonade and iced tea, will be available throughout the stadium. And, at long last, fans can purchase bottomless popcorn.
The school has also worked with city of Atlanta authorities to modify traffic routes to ease entry and departure from campus.
