WVU board approves facilities, PRT upgrades

MORGANTOWN — The West Virginia University Board of Governor has approved athletic facilities upgrades and improvements to the university’s Personal Rapid Transit monorail.

The board approved the projects at a meeting Friday in Morgantown.

The athletic facilities plan is estimated to cost $106 million, $75 million of which would come from bonds paid by guaranteed annual revenue from the Big 12 Conference.

Some of the athletic projects are expected to begin this year, including an upgrade to the football team room in the Milan Puskar Center and football stadium renovations.

The PRT upgrade includes tunnel repair and electronics that operate the track, stations, pay booths and other items.
