Expansion funding approved for The Yards

Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — The Yards now has $25 million approved to go toward its development, thanks to approval from the Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District Board.

That approval opens up the possibility for a space for men’s hockey to practice.

It would also go toward a space for women’s and men’s gymnastics, men’s wrestling and women’s volleyball competitions.
The funding would also expand the terminal by adding more space for buses, more waiting space and more room for parking. 

MTD leaders say they’re excited because this gives a new purpose to property that isn’t being utlitized. 

They are applying for that funding through grants.
