Officials move to seek construction manager in Astrodome project

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A small step took place Tuesday morning in the proposed renovation project for the Astrodome.

During a meeting, the Commissioners Court voted unanimously to advertise and seek a construction manager for the project.

The construction manager would help the county get a specific cost estimate of the project, which is now expected to cost roughly $94 million. The project includes raising the Astrodome's floors and installing two levels of parking underneath.
