ROCKFORD - The final hurdle in East's bid for a new field house is cleared.

The Rockford Public School board voted Tuesday to hire Vissering Construction Co. to build a 63,000 sq. ft. field house addition for the E-rabs.

The addition includes:

  • 160 meter track
  • three basketball courts
  • multipurpose room/weight room
  • cafeteria
  • elevator
  • new parking lot

The current library will be demolished and renovations will be made to the courtyard plaza.

Students will also be able to participate in putting the field house together through the Workforce Development Program.
