SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) Wyoming will match $6.5 million in funding to allow Sheridan College to expand and renovate its Technical Education Center.

The Sheridan Press reports construction could begin by fall on the $13 million project. The college plans to remodel existing space and add about 25,000 sq. ft. (2,322.5 sq m) to be used for technical programs like welding and construction, among other improvements.

College President Paul Young said Whitney Benefits contributed $1.5 million in addition to agreeing to match the state's $6.5 million in funding.

He said Gov. Matt Mead originally included the project in a December budget proposal.

Young said the project remained a priority throughout the budget process due to Sheridan Republican Sen. Bruce Burns, an Appropriations Committee member.

The college estimates construction could be complete before 2018.
