The University of Nebraska at Omaha's new arena will cost $11.6 million more than originally estimated, due in part to rising construction costs and a revised split-bowl design.
The new $87.9 million price tag includes the $6.3 million the City of Omaha has agreed to pay for infrastructure improvements near the new arena at 67th and Center Streets.
