LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Work is getting ready to begin on Loeb Stadium's $15 million overhaul, but what's being done this summer is part of the project you won't end up seeing.

As News 18 has previously reported, it will be demolished in the fall of 2019 to make way for a bigger, better stadium. However, utility work must take place first.

Mayor Tony Roswarksi said crews will be burying power lines along Wallace Avenue this summer. They will also be relocating some water and sewage lines in the fall.

Roswarski said there will be little inconvenience for drivers.

"We'll have some traffic restrictions there," he said. "People will always have access to the Frozen Custard and Arni's. We're never going to cut that off, and that's why we're trying to do it later in the season too. So, as it gets closer and that construction timeline gets more and more defined, we'll certainly get that information out."

The brand new facility is being designed by American Structurepoint. That's the same group that designed Kokomo's Municipal stadium.

It's scheduled for completion in the fall of 2020.
