Notre Dame renovations may help local businesses
NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The University of Notre Dame is moving ahead with a $400 million project. It's called the Campus Crossroads Project, and it will add three academic and student life buildings to the outside of their football stadium.
The school was concerned that the stadium was only being used about ten times a year. But this project means it will be used more often. And local businesses hope this will bring in more customers year round.
"I think it's going to make every bar boom," says Mulligan's Bar and Grill owner Patrick Mulligan.
The plan will add at least 3,000-4,000 premium seats to the stadium, putting capacity well over 90,000 on game day.
"More seats, more people," says Mulligan.
