Deal reached in Detroit hockey arena complaint

Updated: Thursday, August 7, 2014

DETROIT (AP) - Federal officials have reached a deal with Olympia Entertainment to improve access for people with disabilities at Joe Louis Arena, the Detroit Red Wing venue.
    
The U.S. attorney's office said Wednesday that the settlement also includes full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act at a planned 18,000-seat hockey arena and entertainment complex near downtown.
    
It resolves a complaint filed by a patron with a disability who couldn't attend Red Wing games at Joe Louis Arena. It requires Olympia Entertainment to provide 45 wheelchair accessible seats, and improve accessibility in restrooms and at concession stands.
    
The NHL's Red Wings are expected to move to the new stadium in 2017.
    
The Associated Press left a message Wednesday seeking comment from Olympia Entertainment.
