(Memphis) The City of Memphis and Federal leaders have agreed on a deal that would bring Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Renovations at the 47-year-old stadium will be less expensive than the city initially estimated, costing $12,000 instead of $40,000.

After the official agreement is signed by the city it will have one year to complete the improvements, like adding more than 200 wheelchair-accessible seats and another 200 companion seats.
