Richland, WA - The Richland School District awarded the general contractor bid for the new Lewis & Clark Elementary School to Fowler General Construction Tuesday.

Fowler's bid of $15.55 million was the lowest of five bids submitted. The new school will replace the existing Lewis & Clark which opened in 1971. 

Fowler is the general contractor for the Pasco School District's elementary school #13 which is currently under construction. 

Other recent Fowler projects are Olds Junior High School in Connell, and ARC of Tri-Cities in Richland.
"This bid result is positive," said Superintendent Rick Schulte in a press release. "Fowler has an excellent track record of quality construction work." 

The new Lewis & Clark will be built on the playfield just to the east of the existing school.  
It will open in August 2015.

After the new school opens, the old Lewis & Clark will be demolished and replaced with a new playfield area. 
District residents approved a bond issue for the new Lewis & Clark and eight other projects in February 2013.
