BRIDGEPORT, Neb. (AP) — Voters in a Nebraska Panhandle school district have approved a bond measure for renovations and new classrooms.
Nearly 58 percent of voters in the Bridgeport district voted yes on the $8.9 million proposal in Tuesday's special election. Turnout was 56 percent.
In addition to new classrooms in the building that houses fourth through sixth grades, the project includes construction of a new commons area, a 640-seat auditorium and new athletic facilities.
The project is expected to be complete by fall 2015.
