DakotaDome Renovations in 2018

The major project for the University of South Dakota Athletics department in 2018 is the renovation of the nearly 40-year-old DakotaDome in Vermillion.

U-S-D Athletic Director David Herbster says they hope to have their strategic plan completed by the end of February.  Herbster says U-S-D has received approval on the first two phases from the South Dakota Board of Regents to go ahead with the renovations at the Dome.

The estimated cost of the renovations at the DakotaDome is 26 million dollars and Herbster says they already have secured nearly 20 million of that total.
