Cajundome set to receive major upgrades

Updated:

Some major changes are in store for the Cajundome, amounting up to 16 million dollars. It's the largest capital improvement project at the facility in over a decade.

Improvements range from a new clubhouse, to better lighting. But the biggest project involves an 8 million dollar upgrade to the seating area, which will include replacing and adding new seats.

Wednesday afternoon Cajundome director Greg Davis was in Kentucky touring the Louisville Arena, gathering ideas from that brand new facility. Davis said the arena in the Cajundome is 28 years old. 

The architectural designs that were prevalent in 1985 are not cutting it in 2013. Davis goes on to say the upgrades will give the Cajundome a better chance at attracting acts to Lafayette. Money being used to pay for the upgrades comes from a local hotel-motel sales tax.

Cajundome officials are still waiting for final approval on the proposed projects. If all goes as planned, the Cajundome Arena will be closed from May 2015 thru October 2015 in order to make all the necessary upgrades.
