With a bustling construction scene behind them, Cleveland ISD trustees and administrators “officially” broke ground Thursday, July 12, on a new service center, a couple of weeks after the original groundbreaking was canceled due to heavy rains.
The service center and transportation hub, located on FM 1010 on the old Cleveland Youth Baseball Association fields, is being funded through a portion of the $80 million bond approved by 64 percent of voters in May 2017.
Once built, the service center will allow the district to relocate its bus barn and provide storage for food service, and maintenance and operations.
The $80 million bond also is funding construction of a new elementary campus and an expansion of Cleveland High School.
This round of bond projects is being overseen by Sedalco, Inc., of Fort Worth.
