$130M renovation at Dayton airport to begin this year


DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A $130 million renovation project at Dayton International Airport in southwestern Ohio will begin this year.

The Dayton Daily News reports financing has been secured for the first phases of the project that will create a glass-walled passenger entrance to the airport terminal, add a new floor and rebuild parking lots.

Reconstruction of the airport’s economy parking lot will begin this summer with work to tear out the terminal’s existing facade and replace it with a glass wall and canopy set to begin in September. The entire renovation is expected to continue over 10 years.

The Federal Aviation Administration this week signed off on the airport’s use of passenger fee proceeds to pay for a $28 million bond issue. That clears the way for a bond sale later this year.
