GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - Red River High School will soon have more parking options as part of the school's theater expansion project.

On Monday night, the Grand Forks School Board approved plans for a new parking lot on the south side of the theater.

Those plans will also widen part of Knudsvig Drive, which will still allow for parallel parking on that street and will also allow for new diagonal parking spaces on the opposite side.

The project will now go out for bid. It is expected to cost $610,000.

Both additions will add about 113 parking spaces.

"Both of these are able to serve the theater, Cushman Field, along with student and staff parking during the day. A cost associated with this bid will be paid out of the current special assessment levy, under which we would not increase the levy," School District Business Manager Bill Hutchison said.

Construction is set to begin on June 1 and be completed August 10, just in time for the 2012-2013 school year.
