Paragon Sports Contractors out of Fort Worth received the bid.
Renae Murphy with WFISD said the cost of the new field also covers the price of installing a new drainage system.
Workers could start installing the new turf as early as next week, and it's expected to be done by June 1st in time for the Oil Bowl.
