“We had a 1957 terminal building in need of an update,” explains Airport Director Derek Martin. “Small communities generally can’t afford a completely new terminal building. Our short-term goal was to refresh the building to provide our customers with 21st century amenities and a more pleasurable travel experience.”

In total, construction lasted six months and cost $500,000. The airport completed the project in August—a timely finish given its recent rise in air traffic.

“Our customers’ travel experience has been enhanced with top-of-the-line amenities that might be offered at major airports around the country. And we did it on a budget.”
