Cajundome renovations includes new seats, interactive murals
LAFAYETTE - New seating and improved concession booths are some of the features of a major renovation underway inside Lafayette's Cajundome.
The renovation, which started in May, is proceeding on schedule, maybe even a little ahead of schedule, with an anticipated Dec.1 re-opening date.
While the focus is on the interior of the arena, The Advertiser reports bids should be in hand in August to resurface the roof of the Cajundome, which is mostly black from dirt and mildew.
The $21 million interior renovation is the first large-scale upgrade of the arena, which opened on Nov. 10, 1985.
The renovation is being funded with the sale of bonds.
