Holland board OKs plan for $3.6M terminal for Tulip City Airport
Holland airport authority approves engineering plan for $3.6 million terminal expansion
The board in charge of Holland's airport has hired an engineering firm to draft plans for a new terminal that's expected to cost about $3.6 million.
The new terminal would be built on the north side of the West Michigan Regional Airport, known until last year as the Tulip City Airport.
The West Michigan Airport Authority voted Monday to hire Mead & Hunt to develop detailed plans for a 10,000- to 11,000-square-foot airport operations center, according to Mlive.com.
That's about five times the size of the existing terminal.
The $25,000 project will include construction plans and detailed cost estimates.
Other planned improvements include a $3.1 million apron between the terminal and the runway.
