WATERTOWN, S.D.–We now know the date when construction will begin on Watertown’s new ice arena.

City Manager Amanda Mack says a groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Wednesday September 7th at 12:30 p.m.

The naming rights sponsor for the $31.9 million arena will also be announced at that time.

This week, the city council passed a second and final construction bid package clearing the way for work on the arena to begin.

It’ll be built just off Willow Creek Drive, north of Hobby Lobby.

An opening date of Fall 2023 is expected.
