Presentation College is preparing to begin construction on a $2.4 million inflatable dome to cover and expand an athletic practice field.
The school's Board of Trustees approved the project Wednesday. Construction is to start by the end of next week, with an estimated completion date of mid-November.
The Winter Dome will provide an additional 108,000 square feet of space for intramurals, team practices and other college events during the winter months. The Dome will go up in November and come down in May.
