Richmond International Airport, in Virginia, is set to invest close to $60 million in infrastructure next year, according to reports.
Construction is expected to start in late spring or early summer 2014 on the five capital improvement projects, according to the Richmond Times Dispatch.
CEO, Jon Mathiasen, said: “The airport continues to make improvements to ensure we have an efficient, safe facility.”
The work will be paid for using federal and state funds, as well as revenue from the airport’s $4.50 per airline ticket passenger facility charge.
The projects include:
• reconstruction of Taxiway Mike on the airport’s east side
• building a new access road to the airfield’s east side from Williamsburg Road
• reconstruction of aging crossfield Taxiway Echo
• construction of a snow removal equipment building
• rehabilitation of the air cargo apron and a general aviation parking ramp
The airport handles about 3.2 million passengers a year.
