Veterans Memorial Coliseum work continues

Dane County Executive Joe Parisi’s office announced a $1.1 million upgrade project for Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the Alliant Energy Center aimed at bringing more concerts and events to the venue.

Miron Construction will begin improvements in April, including upgrading the lighting system and installing a new fall protection and rigging system, and work should be completed in mid-June, according to a release.

Last year, bathrooms were renovated and lighting was improved in public concourses.

In 2017, the AEC campus reported its highest revenue since the 2008 recession.
