Construction has begun at Cajun Field to add additional seating in the south end zone.
Initial plans involve removing landscaping, flag poles and signs to make way for the new seating. This project is just one part of the Athletics Master Plan that also includes construction of an athletics performance center as well as upgrades to the soccer and track facility.
UL officials say these projects will be completed without the use of state funds. The construction will be funded through the sale of bonds, self-assessed student fees, and auxiliary revenue.
Current plans have the construction at Cajun Field set to be complete before the start of the 2014 football season.
