Cape Girardeau school board accepts construction bid

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Cape Girardeau school board accepted a bid for construction of the new Central High School event stadium.

Last April, voters approved a $40 million school bond that will fund the new stadium as well as a fine arts center.

Some of the money from that bond will also be used to renovate libraries and add classrooms.

No word yet on when construction will begin.
