TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A big remodeling job begins next week at the Tucson Convention Center's arena.

Crews will upgrade the restrooms, improve concession stands, and develop a new entry way. They'll also improve the lighting and sound systems, officials said.

New, more comfortable seats are also coming with cup holders.

The Rio Nuevo district is funding the work, which will cost nearly $8 million.  It should be finished by the end of the year.
