Upgrades to the Truist Stadium are expected to cost more than originally planned. Winston-Salem City Council approved an additional $1.6 million to meet the mandatory Major League Baseball standards.

The original budget approved for the project was $5 million, but due to construction inflation and the complexity of the design, councilmembers approved the new projected cost, which now stands at $6,649,285.

As a High-A MLB affliate, Truist Stadium, home of the Winston-Salem Dash, is required to adhere to facility standards.

Upgrades include:

  • Relocating lower-level concessions and raising the wall height in right field.
  • Upgrades to the commissary, shower and toilet facilities, training room and coach locker rooms for home + visiting teams.
  • Increasing floor space in the dressing area for the visiting team.
  • Adding a second hitting/pitching tunnel to other team facilities.

No word yet on when construction will begin.
