Construction crews started work to remove the existing Field Turf – and in coming months will lay down an all new surface. It’s the sixth version of the turf in the color blue installed in the stadium since it first went in in 1986.

Workers also removed a series of “zipper” boards along the top deck of the stadium – and a smaller auxiliary scoreboard in the south end zone.

“The ribbon boards are being replaced starting Monday, and a video board will be installed in the south end zone beginning in June,” Joe Nickell with Boise State told BoiseDev.

He said the zipper boards will be similar in size to the previous displays. Crews will also replace the field-level display boards.

For the field itself, A few subtle changes will be introduced, including a new font for field numbers and updated Albertsons Stadium logos. The turf will be extended all the way to the sidelines to cover an area that formerly housed a track.

Work on the new turf will be complete by the end of May.
