Rapides Parish Coliseum Renovation Moving Forward

ALEXANDRIA, LA (AP) — Officials describe the Rapides Parish Coliseum renovation project as "so far, so good" after four months of work.

         About 120 concrete piers have been driven 34 feet into the ground around the Coliseum, setting the stage for the foundation to be placed for the $22.9 million renovation project.

         Adam Grunzinger, the project architect for Alliance Design Group, tells The Town Talk’s Richard Sharkey the project still has a long way to go, but it is basically on schedule, despite some rainy weather and having to change the type of piers used. He says the renovation work began in late April, and the project overall is about 10 percent complete.
