State budget concerns cause change of location for LSU nutrition building
BATON ROUGE - A new athletic nutrition center planned for LSU's campus won't be built where it was planned because of the state's uncertain budget situation.
The $12 million facility was supposed to be built on Skip Bertman Drive, near the old LSU baseball stadium. Instead, it will be built inside Tiger Stadium.
Funding for the project has already been secured through donations. In March 2015, the University announced it was delaying construction on the facility because looming budget cuts made it not the right time to build.
The facility's planned site will be used as part of the Nicholson Gateway Project instead.
