Bus loop repairs on the way for Discovery Middle School

A rough ride will soon be a whole lot smoother for students, staff, parents and bus drivers who use the Discovery Middle School parking lots.

District 206 school board members unanimously approved a project to repair the bus loop that runs in front of the school and the bus parking area behind the school.

Improvements are set to begin early to mid-August.

The project was awarded to low-bidder Riley Brothers Companies of Morris for $240,498; the engineer's estimated cost for the project was $294,000.
