HERMISTON, Ore. -- Bids are now being accepted for the construction of the Kennison Field Renovation Project in Hermiston.

The fundraising committee says they have raised all of the funding needed for the $4 million project. Construction is set to begin in early February.

Combining $3.3 million in Federal and State grants, a $250,000 Hermiston Sports Booster donation, and over $700,000 in local and regional contributions, permits the district to deliver the facility amenities identified by the Kennison Field Renovation Committee and endorsed by the Board of Education.

The facility is expected to be completed by August 1, 2013, before the first home football game.
