FACILITY NOTES

          In DC, Mike Cleary reports that the MCI Center has
     "spurred or accelerated" many of the projects in the eastern
     part of downtown DC.  The arena has also "brought a new wave
     of patrons" to the area (WASHINGTON TIMES, 5/11)....Work
     crews will begin dismantling the retractable roof at Olympic
     Stadium today.  The process, to be completed in December,
     will cost Quebecers C$180M, much of it in repairs, to
     replace it with a C$37M permanent roof (TORONTO STAR, 5/11).
     ...Int'l Speedway Corp. (ISC) showed plans Friday for its
     proposed, $200M Kansas Int'l Speedway.  The new track will
     sport condominiums, a restaurant and a museum and should
     closely resemble the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (K.C. STAR,
     5/9)....Harbor Yard, the new minor league park for the
     Bridgeport (CT) Bluefish will cost taxpayers about $17M
     instead of the projected $14M (HARTFORD COURANT, 5/11).
