OKLAHOMA CITY -- The NBA lockout may be keeping us from watching the Thunder play, but isn't stopping work from happening at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.

On the outside of the arena, you'll find a huge video board. And inside, there are new video boards and the main concourse has been remodeled from the ground up.

"It used to be bare concrete and low metal ceilings," said Tim Linville with Chesapeake Energy. "Now, you've got brand new terrazzo with color in it and the walls are different. We've got video screens."

The changes are in the final phase of a three-part renovation. The construction outside will be finished in June 2012.

The renovation price tag is $100 million.
