Armory upgrades near completion

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS (WCIA) -- One of campus' oldest buildings is getting some upgrades.

Remodeling on the Armory started in 2016. Now, officials say the project is almost done.

Outside, it's seen new windows and a new roof. Inside, the building has undergone cosmetic changes like new lights and paint.

Classrooms are getting some upgraded tech too. Officials say it's all to keep the building up-to-date.

While doing that, officials say they're also preserving the building's history. They hope to have everything finished before school starts in August.
