Engineers taking stock of Keystone Centre roof, work could begin this summer

Engineers are beginning to examine the best possible way to fix an aging, leaking roof at the Keystone Centre.

Experts will first look at the structural integrity of the steel, according to Keystone Centre general manager Neil Thomson, then a plan will be developed using the $4 million in funding the Keystone received from the provincial and municipal governments.

“We’re hoping the roof will be started this summer, but part of it depends on what the final design plan will be,” Thomson said.

The roof was just one of many topics discussed at the Keystone Centre’s board of directors meeting Thursday night.

Thomson is also excited to finally see the snow melt at the grounds, lending itself to the final phase of the new full-service campground at the Keystone site.

While sewer and water plumbing was installed prior to last year’s frost, Thomson said contractors will soon begin trenching electrical services to each campsite.

Tickets sales for Mötley Crüe, who play Westman Place on May 6, and KISS, who perform July 17, continue to trickle in and Thomson said he expects a good walk-up crowd, which typically adds an additional 10 to 20 per cent of the total gate.
