UNI wants to repair dome roof

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) - The University of Northern Iowa says it plans to ask the Board of Regents for permission to move forward with a project that would repair or replace parts of the UNI-Dome roof.

Doug Jensen, the school's associate director of facilities and operations, says the roof's stainless steel "skin" is full of dents and divots from wind and hail that ripped through Black Hawk County on July 10.

The Dome is insured by Traveler's Insurance Co. as part of the university's comprehensive policy, which has a $100,000 deductible. In all, storm damage at the university totaled about $5.4 million, with an estimated $4.3 million tagged for Dome roof repairs.
