Hurricanes scheduled to open season at Dolphins' stadium as construction continues

First scheduled game at remodeled stadium will be Dolphins preseason finale

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Hurricanes are still scheduled to open the season at the Dolphins' stadium on Sept. 3, and construction is moving right along at the stadium.

Local 10 News cameras captured construction workers in action early Wednesday night.

Earlier this month, a report surfaced that the stadium would not be ready in time for Miami's home opener against Florida A&M.

Bill Senn, senior vice president of stadium renovations for the Dolphins, refuted the report in a statement.

"Getting a project of this scale done in this timeframe is unprecedented and the contractor is working diligently on a 24/7 basis to complete the canopy structure," Senn said. "While we will be doing some non-football critical elements and final touches into the season similar to phase one last year, at this point in the process, we still expect to be ready to play football Sept. 1."

The first scheduled game at the remodeled stadium will be the Dolphins preseason finale against the Titans on Sept. 1.
