A new group of phased bid packages will be released June 16 for the Rose Bowl Stadium renovation and improvement project in Pasadena.

Ground was broken on the three-year, $152-million project in late January and is the largest investment in the history of the 88-year-old iconic structure that will improve public safety, enhance the fan experience, maintain the national historic landmark status of the Rose Bowl Stadium, and develop revenue sources to fund the project and other long-term improvements to the stadium’s facilities, according to its owners, the Rose Bowl Operating Co.

Bernards/Barton Malow joint venture is the construction manager with D’Agostino Izzo & Quirk serving as architect.

The current phase 1C bid packages include work on new foundations for the press facility, improved lighting and sound systems, concourse reorganization, landscaping, precast stadium risers and replacement of 92,000 stadium seats. Valuation of this phase is $10 million.

The focus of the three-phase project is to expedite tunnel ingress/egress, improve concourse circulation, increase the number of concession stands and restrooms, provide state-of-the-art premium seating products in a rebuilt press box and install a new scoreboard and cutting-edge video board. The renovation will also address key stadium infrastructure needs that will allow the facility to continue to operate for decades to come. Work will continue outside the football season through August 2013.
