LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — It's a project News 18 has been following for nearly two years, and Tuesday more progress was made on the Loeb Stadium renovation.

The board of works opened bids at its Tuesday morning meeting, and almost 40 bids were made.

The offers cover all parts of the multi-million dollar project. That includes work like masonry, seating and turf.

Mayor Tony Roswarski said he was glad to see a lot of local companies making offers.

"We would always prefer to have local companies do the work, but his is an open bidding process so anybody can bid," he said. "We need that to help control cost and make sure that we get good, competitive bids."

The bids are now under advisement, and a decision will be made in three to five weeks.

Work is scheduled to start the day after the Aviators last home game in August.
