LPSB approves bid from Vista Construction

The Lincoln Parish School Board has approved Vista Construction Group of Monroe’s $1.5 million bid to add new classrooms, a soccer facility, a new roof on the auditorium and a new floor for the girls’ gym at Ruston High School.

The approval came Tuesday during the board’s monthly meeting.

Transportation Coordinator James Payton said the bid covers construction of three New Tech@Ruston classrooms, the new roof, floor and soccer facility and $20,000 to repair the gym floor as well as $9,000 for a new basketball goal winch system.

At the March board meeting, the board granted permission to advertise a bid for the project and received six bidders.

Local architect Mike Walpole said the bids were close to the board’s estimates.

“I feel comfortable with Vista doing the work,” he said.
