New football stadium progress

A worker is seen Saturday installing the visiting bleacher section of the new football stadium being constructed adjacent to Muskogee High School. The stadium is expected to be ready for the 2022 season. On April 6, open bids will begin for the new gymnasium with bids being accepted March 13 in a special board meeting. Pending approval of bids, construction could start in mid-May, according to Steve Braun, communications and marketing director for Muskogee Public Schools.
