Rutgers stadium bids $18 million over budget Planned expansion of facility will be scaled back

Bids for the expansion of the Rutgers University football stadium in Piscataway, N.J., came in as much as $18 million over budget, according to two officials briefed on the stadium's growing financial problems. The higher costs represent more than 17 percent of the project's $102 million budget. The school plans to scale back the project, but hasn't determined specifics. Officials say reducing seating capacity is an option of last resort.
