Annarbor.com reports that a $14 million renovation of Yost Ice Arena will be going before the regents on Thursday for approval:
Improved concourses, new seating and new loge boxes for fans at Yost Ice Arena are among the improvements in a $14 million plan the University of Michigan Board of Regents will consider for approval when it meets Thursday.
The schedule for the construction has not yet been set. Some additional details from the university action request:
The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is proposing a project which will replace the spectator seating on the east, south and west sides of the rink, improving accessibility as well as emergency egress. The project also includes improvements to the east and west concourses, conversion of the level four west side media balcony into a series of loge boxes, a new level five on the west side for media, as well as new comer and stair platforms for additional seating. Infrastructure improvements will be made, including upgrading the existing fire alarm system, extending the existing fire suppression system to areas which are not currently protected, and replacing the exterior windows.
