While change is good, what will the fan notice once they walk into the new FE stadium?

For 15 years First Energy Stadium was just there...with little or no improvements.

But if you drive by the structure on Al Lerner Way, you'll see a dramatic change coming our way for this fall.

But..there are a few questions to think about.

Cleveland Browns President Alec Scheiner took us on a tour to see the progress of the newly renovated FirstEnergy Stadium.

While change is good, what will the fan notice once they walk into the new FE stadium?

The Browns will host the fourth biggest scoreboard in the NFL, and the reasoning is to get you out of your homes and to the game.

The audio experience will make you feel like you are in the action.

That is what the Browns want. They want you to come to the Stadium to enjoy the big video boards, instead of watching them at home.

Many seats will have new sight lines to watch the action.

The video boards components have left South Dakota and are en route to Cleveland, and will be here Tuesday.

All these changes have been a long time coming, 15 years to be exact. The Haslams are truly putting their money where the fans have asked.

With two new escalators going in on the east and west gates, you will now be able to get to your seats faster with less congestion as before.

This is just phase 1 of 2. Phase 2 will begin in 2015.

All this work is on-time and on budget, and Phase 1 should be ready in time for the Browns opener.

So with 204 workers working today, two million pounds of steel and 13.3 million pounds of newly poured concrete, it continues.

Cleveland's stadium is being "renovated" for some winning football!
