Construction could begin at the new Andalusia High School athletic facility in as little as three weeks, said project engineer Joe Dofrono at Monday’s board of education meeting.

The announcement came after board members awarded the project bid to low bidder Bay Shore Construction of Bay Minette. The award was for the base bid and add alternate one. Cost of the project is set at $2.308 million; however, Dofrono said he will work with contractors “to get that price down even more.”

The company will have 365 calendar days to complete the project.

“It’ll take about 10 days to get the contract and do the paperwork,” he said. “We could turn dirt three weeks from today. It’ll take a bit to mobilize, but we’re going to kick it into high gear.”
