Longview,TX — Pine Tree ISD officials expect to open bids next week on a scaled-down athletic stadium after bids on the project came in $2 million over budget earlier this year.
Gallagher Construction Service issued new bid packages to subcontractors July 23. District spokeswoman Vicki Echols said the school will hold a pre-bid meeting today at Pine Tree High School and open bids Tuesday.
Superintendent T.J. Farler said the board will open bids for four building projects, including the proposed athletic stadium, game day field house, high school soccer, softball, tennis field house as well as renovation of an area that includes career tech, culinary arts, and visual media and renovation of the high school theater.
The total bond package passed by voters in 2011 was $29.9 million. Some of the projects have already been completed, officials said.
