TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Shepler Construction is moving forward with the Tippecanoe County Fairgrounds project.

The company was selected by commissioners Monday morning.

It's expected to cost the county a little more than 3 million dollars. 

Commissioner Dave Byers is happy with the county's decision.

"It was great, we had three companies bid and they [Shepler] came in the lowest," said Byers. "It's getting nerve-racking, it's actually moving."

Byers said he has been working on this project for about 15 years. 

He said work should begin the day after this year's county fair.
