UW-River Falls set to break ground on $63.5 million building

River Falls (WQOW) - A western Wisconsin university is getting ready to break ground on a 63.5 million dollar building project.
UW-River Falls will break ground on the new Falcon Center next week.  The project has been in the works for many years, but wasn't approved until 2011. 
Renovations will be made to the football stadium, hockey arena, and indoor track.  The project also includes new classrooms and labs as well as a new basketball arena.
“Once people start to see the construction I think that's when you'll really see the excitement on campus that this is finally becoming a reality,” said Public Information Officer Blake Fry. “We've had nice drawings and plans for a very long time, but once shovel finally hits dirt, I think people will finally start to realize this is a reality for us.”
Ground breaking on the Falcon Center is a week from Friday.  Construction is expected to be completed in January of 2017.
