Work Ahead Of Schedule At New Milwaukee Arena

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (CelebrityAccess) — Work on the new $500 million Milwaukee Bucks arena project in downtown Milwaukee is proceeding ahead of schedule, according to a report by Fox6 News.

Construction for the arena project broke ground in June 2017 and so far, the concrete foundation, steel and seating are in place for the arena.

Every day there is strong progress — noticeable to the naked eye, and that's exhilarating," Mike McCarthy, Bucks COO told Fox6. "It's fully closed now. The roof is about 40% complete in terms of the steel."

"Over the next two months, you will start to see uniqueness to the structure. I think the next big thing is the training facility is going to open this summer. That is going to be physically in operation. State-of-the-art," McCarthy added.

The arena, which will replace the Bucks current home at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, is slated to open in time for the start of the 2018-19 NBA season.
