Plans have been approved to modernize Lake Placid's Olympic Center.    

Preliminary work is expected to get underway in November, and could be finished in 2022.    


The 100 million dollar project includes renovations of the figure skating, hockey and speed skating venues.    

It would be the first major upgrade to these facilities since the 1980 Winter Olympics.         

Other upgrades being considered include an open-air viewing deck overlooking both the Olympic outdoor speed skating oval and Main Street.
