SMU Garry Weber End Zone Stadium project

end zone project plans

The first week in January, those of you who travel on Mockingbird or reside near the south side of the SMU campus will see increased activity on the grounds of Ford Stadium. Here are project details from SMU's Office of Facilities Planning and Management.

SMU’s Garry Weber End Zone Complex project kicks off January 3 with the start of construction demolition. By expanding and improving Gerald J. Ford Stadium, the new south end zone structure will provide additional seating, suites, athletic spaces, concessions, and training facilities to support SMU Athletics and enhance guest experiences.

To minimize congestion and ease the flow of traffic, construction vehicles and crews will follow a specified route (see map below). All construction loading or unloading will take place within the fenced area of the site.


Start of Construction: Tuesday, January 3, 2023
Estimated Completion: Thursday, August 1, 2024
