There will be a two-lane roundabout at the entrance of the airport. Officials said that will be the first of its kind in our area.

Board chairman Glen McDonald said the airport is excited about the state’s project.

“DOT has seen some construction changes with all of the issues with the materials and things, but the airport is number one, really excited,” McDonald said. “Starting in March, we’re gonna have some different changes to have you enter into and exit from the airport and which directions you go, so we need our passengers to be ready for that.”

Officials said they hope the project will be completed by the summer of 2024.
