MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - The mayor of Mitchell expects a renovation project at the Corn Palace to be done by April.

Ken Tracy told The Daily Republic (https://bit.ly/18ldPS4 ) the most visible part of the project will be new $650,000 domes with LED lighting, which should be installed next month.

The iconic domes and turrets were removed last year as part of the $7.2 million makeover project.

Other upgrades to the building include larger corn murals and a walk-out balcony above the marquee.

Reconstruction inside the city’s major tourist attraction will continue until the end of April.

The Corn Palace bills itself as the world’s only palace dedicated to the grain. About 200,000 tourists visit each year.
