Construction of the Pinnacle Bank Arena is officially complete and the city of Lincoln is now in possession of the $179 million building.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports fences came down over the weekend and the city received an occupancy permit Monday.
Mortenson Construction will receive a bonus for finishing the job early, though arena coordinator Dan Marvin says there still is a bit of work to be finished inside. Those projects include finish work on the concession stands.
The first events will be Friday and Saturday, when the University of Nebraska-Lincoln holds graduation ceremonies.
