NEW YORK (AP) — The United States Tennis Association says a retractable roof will be constructed over Arthur Ashe Stadium, the main venue for the U.S. Open.

The USTA says it will reveal design plans for a makeover of the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at a news conference Thursday.

The plans call for a roof on Ashe Stadium, along with two new stadiums and a plaza where fans can view practice courts.

The USTA has been considering putting a roof on Ashe Stadium for years to limit weather delays, but officials have said they had not found a cost-effective way to do it.
