NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro Sports Authority officials said Thursday that repairs to the upper deck of Nissan Stadium have begun.

Workers began replacing the seats and concrete in the area that was damaged by a misfired fireworks shell on July 4.

It was the largest firework display in the country with thousands of pounds of explosives and 60,000 shells. News 2 was told at the time that around a dozen or so shells either don’t fire or misfire during fireworks displays that large.
