Oregon State’s Reser Stadium remodeling project now carries a $140 million price tag, down from $175 million

The cost to remodel the aging west side of Oregon State’s Reser Stadium has fallen substantially during the past year.

Oregon State athletic director Scott Barnes said earlier this week that the price tag to remodel Reser Stadium is now $140 million. That’s down 20 percent from a projected cost of $175 million at the outset of the project.
