Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity revealed that there will be improvements to Sanford Stadium’s bathrooms in a letter addressed to fans Thursday.

According to the letter, the bathrooms will be “expedited and completed” before the 2017 season.

The news comes several weeks after the program approved a $63 million project to build new locker rooms and a recruiting area at Sanford Stadium, which brought disapproval from many fans who wanted an improved gameday experience instead. Earlier this month, McGarity acknowledged that the university would look into fans’ concerns.

Here’s the full letter from McGarity:

“In an effort to enhance the game day experience for our fans, we are pleased to report that planning for Phase III of the Sanford Stadium restroom renovations currently under way and scheduled for completion prior to the start of the 2017 season. Previously, restrooms on level 100 of the south and southeast side were renovated in Phase I prior to the 2015 season. Phase II, completed prior to the season, included renovations to restrooms on the 300 level of the south and southeast side. Renovations on all remaining restrooms on the 100, 200 and 300 levels throughout the stadium concourses will be expedited and completed prior to the 2017 season.

“These renovations will include the addition of all touchless fixtures, LED lighting, new flooring, new exhaust fans, and new paint matching the recent renovations (as seen below). We look forward to these renovations and the continued improvement on our gameday experience.

“Also of note, several improvements in concessions services throughout Sanford Stadium will also be in place for 2017 and we will update you with those improvements later this spring.

“As always, thank you for your support of our program! Go Dawgs.”
