FORT WAYNE, Ind. (NBC33) - Construction is set to begin this coming January on the $14.8 million expansion to the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.

The project will include adding more than 27,000 square feet of new expo space, which puts the facility over 200,000 total square footage. The extension will be built off "Expo Hall One" starting near the Johnny Appleseed Room.

Most importantly, it changes the game for Fort Wayne when it comes to hosting newer and even bigger events.
