WFHS bleachers on schedule

Depending on how things go, football fans may get to sit on a new set of bleachers this fall after all.

On Monday, the West Fargo School Board approved ids for a visitor's seating section, to be constructed on the east side of the football/track field at West Fargo High School.

An official with MBN Engineering originally said at the board's Aug. 8 meeting that the earliest construction would be completed was Oct. 28, with final construction being complete by Nov. 4.

However, now it looks as if construction will be finished much sooner; possibly by the first week of October.

Board members decided to take the base bids as well as the alternates for a total of more than $150,000, which still was $38,000 less than estimated.

Opp Construction was awarded the bid for concrete work, while Seating & Athletic Facility Enterprises earned the bleacher bid.
