WesBanco Arena renovations almost complete

The renovations to Wheeling's WesBanco Arena are scheduled to be complete in the next 2 weeks. The $6.3 million project started last May and the finishing touches on the new lobby are being completed now (WTOV).

If you haven't been to the downtown Wheeling area in a while, you may not have noticed a facelift to WesBanco Arena.

The renovations are scheduled to be complete in the next two weeks. The $6.3 million project started last May and the finishing touches on the new lobby are being completed now.

The arena already sports brand new seating and a digital video board. Greater Wheeling Sports and Entertainment Authority Executive Director Dennis Magruder says he hopes the renovations will draw in new events.

"The other thing it does for us is it gets people excited again," he said. "It helps us to ensure the events that have been here for the last 12 years on a regular basis continue to come, but also gives us an opportunity to reach out, get some attention, and attract some new events."

WesBanco is having a private grand opening gala on June 17.

Magruder says they're looking to have an open house for the public sometime in the coming weeks.
