Tiger Stadium to undergo expansion - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Tiger Stadium to undergo expansion

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in tonight for Cynthia… here's a look at what we're working on for Nightcast.

The Cove Lane Interchange project is moving forward. It's expected to alleviate traffic in and around the new casino. Officials expect a portion of it to be finished by July of next year with the entire project complete boy October or November. Tonight, the City of Lake Charles gets the bill for what it will cost to light up the project. KPLC's Olivia Vidal has the details.

Plus, a dozen Lake Charles Fire Fighters are honored tonight for their response to an accident back in May.  

Also a Michigan woman is arrested after police say she tried to hire a hit man to kill her husband… only thing is the "hit man" was an undercover cop. You'll see the murder for hire unfold as it was all caught on tape.

And it's prime time mosquito season in Southwest Louisiana. As we focus to protect ourselves and families…  In tonight's Healthcast KPLC's Britney Glaser says you'll want to remember every family member, including your pets. She takes a closer look at how to prevent heartworms.

I can't recall a cooler July… if you were outside this evening you probably noticed the nice breeze. Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton has a look at the forecast and if we can expect any more scattered showers. He's also still tracking Tropical Storm Chantal.

And Tiger Stadium is about to get a little bigger. We'll tell you about the latest expansion in sports.

We'll see you tonight at ten. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
