LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The Burton Coliseum is getting a major upgrade, according to Jason Barnes, the facility's general manager.

The coliseum is getting a new roof, a new metal exterior and better lighting.

Barnes said when the improvements are complete, the coliseum will have a new look.

Work began this summer. The project is expected to take about a year to complete.

Barnes said scheduled events at the facility should not be affected.
