The Morning Brew: A look at OKC's airport makeover; Norman schools begin random drug tests
Terminal expansion to take about two years
The Oklahoman's Bill Crum takes a look at changes coming to Will Rogers World Airport.
Oklahoma City could seek bids as soon as next month for construction of the long-planned, four-gate terminal expansion at Will Rogers World Airport.
Airport trustees voted unanimously Thursday to authorize preliminary steps required to obtain financing, with the goal of issuing up to $115 million in bonds.
As designed, the project is estimated to cost $89.3 million and could be ready two years after construction begins.
NORMAN — Oklahoma's seventh-largest school district is the latest to adopt a random drug-testing policy for high school students who participate in sports and other extracurricular activities.
Beginning Aug. 16, Norman Public Schools will test 30 students each from Norman High and Norman North every month for drugs that include marijuana and alcohol.
