Proposed renovations to Cajundome will cost about $18.9 million dollars - $2.9 million more than the original estimate.
The Advertiser reports Cajundome Commission members got a look at the cost estimates Monday at their monthly meeting.
Director Greg Davis says some projects may be delayed if they cannot fit into the construction budget of $16 million.
The proposed renovations include the installation of new 100-level seating for $6 million, a new clubhouse area for $3 million, an office replacement for $2 million, storage areas for $1.5 million and renovations to the Cajundome Convention Center parking lot.
Money for the renovations will come from the sale of bonds that are funded with the state sales taxes of hotels and motels.
