Major renovations to Lansing’s downtown baseball stadium are costing more than expected.

City officials recently learned the renovations to the nearly 20-year-old ballpark would cost $3 million more than expected.

Bob Trezise is the president of the Lansing Economic Area Partnership. He says the problem is that the economy is getting better.

“The economy is rebounding and there aren’t enough construction firms and construction workers,” says Trezise. “So I think all construction projects are facing this ordeal right now.”
