Roanoke County school officials believe they can now move ahead with expansion and renovations at Cave Spring High School. Three bids were opened today, all of them much closer to the originally budgeted cost than the single bid opened in June that was $17 million over budget. School Board members hope to award the contract before the end of the month.
