New Capitol city arena plans move forward

A Minnosota company will oversee the building of the Haymarket Arena in Lincoln. The Joint Public Agency approved the mayor’s proposal for Mortenson Construction to team up with Hampton enterprises to manage the construction. Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler told the JPA that a big concern was getting the project done on time and on budget.
Mayor Beutler says that Mortenson-Hampton had far and away the lowest cost estimate on the intitial set of costs. It is estimated to cost around $168 million dollars.
