NORMAN, Oklahoma -

University of Oklahoma President David Boren says the planning phase for tornado shelters on the OU campus in Norman is nearing completion.

The $12 million project is an expansion of campus storm shelters for students living in university housing.

The OU Board of Regents last September approved -- at Boren's request -- the hiring of MA Plus to help design a campus system of additional storm shelters.

The new shelters are planned for locations near Walker and Couch Centers as well as Traditions East, Traditions West and Kraettli apartments. They will provide space for approximately 4,000 OU students with access more closely located to their OU housing.
