Fort Nelson arena construction date announced

The new Fort Nelson arena is one step closer to construction.

In 2007, the building collapsed, and authorities deemed snow pileup as the cause of destruction.

Now, the Journal of Commerce is reporting that CJP Architects will begin construction in February 2010.

In September, the facility got 10 million in government funding.

There were some concerns that Fort Nelson might not get that grant, when soil samples came back positive for contaminants. For that story, Click Here.

The Journal reports that the construction manager on the new project is Bird Construction Company.

The facility should be complete by April 2011.
