Officials say the improvements are part of a contractual obligation that will keep the World Series in town through the 2035 season.

Oklahoma City Public Works Director Eric Wenger told the council that work will begin as soon as the series concludes in June. The improvements and expansion will be built in two phases over a two-year period.

The entire project is set to be complete before the 2020 series.
