MIAMI GARDENS, Florida — The Miami Dolphins are about to play in their stadium for the first time since a major remodeling project began.

Renovations won't be done when the Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons kick off Saturday. In fact, the two-year project still has a year to go, and the estimated cost has climbed above $425 million.

But the stadium will be ready for the game. Workers scurried about Thursday while Dolphins president and CEO Tom Garfinkel gave a tour of the site.

Every seat has been replaced, suites and bathrooms have been redesigned, and the concourses are being rebuilt. There's lots of new flooring, lighting and woodwork — and plenty of dust, which is expected to be gone by Saturday.
