VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) — The University of South Dakota has set May 12 as the date to break ground for new athletic facilities.
The heart of the $66 million project is a 6,000-seat arena for basketball and volleyball. The facility will be connected to the existing DakotaDome by a Science, Health and Research Laboratory.
The state Board of Regents approved the arena project late last year. The board also gave USD the go-ahead for a $7 million outdoor soccer and track facility.
The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan reports that the project is to wrap up before the start of the 2016-17 academic year.
