Construction on the San Francisco 49er's new stadium in Santa Clara reaches a milestone today.

Crews are working to install the first seats in the lower bowl of Levi's Stadium.

The lower bowl will be one of the largest in the National Football League with over 45,000 seats. Roughly two-thirds of the stadium's capacity will be housed in that section. It's designed to bring the majority of fans closer to the field.

Stadium will seat more than 68,000 fans when finished.
