FARGO--The Fargodome is committed to spending $9.5 million on new video boards at the arena.

Under the plan approved Tuesday, the two main boards on the north and south ends of the building will be replaced with larger ones measuring 100 by 30 feet. Those two new boards alone cost $3.8 million.

Other major items are four corner boards ($1.1 million), a video control room ($1.3 million) and two rear scoreboards ($3.5 million).

The boards will be useful for both sporting and nonsporting events, General Manager Rob Sobolik said. Bids for the project will go out hopefully in early March and the project should be done by the start of North Dakota State University football season in late August, he said.

The video board will be paid for through a 7-to-10-year bond.
