That’s right, Ford Field will be getting brand new field turf for the upcoming season. It will be the first time the turf has been replaced since 2013.

From Crain’s Detroit:

“We are considering — we are starting the process to replace the field turf that’s on the field, so we are researching all the different companies that are out there right now. Our turf is the second-oldest turf of artificial fields in the NFL. It was installed in 2013. So we will likely be replacing that as part of our off season in 2019,” said Todd Argust, the Lions’ vice president of operations since 2014, according to a transcript of the stadium authority’s meeting provided last week by Wayne County.

Sources familiar with the situation say the new turf project is still a go and should be announced within a few weeks.

There was also talk about installing a retractable roof at Ford Field but that cost (reportedly $75 million) was too much.
