Cape Girardeau City Council approves first-reading of design-build for new airport terminal

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – This week, Cape Girardeau City Council members voted unanimously to approve the first reading of a design-build agreement for the new terminal construction project at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport.

In December, council members voted unanimously to award the $12 million new terminal project to the KCI construction company.

The current passenger terminal was built in 1956 but isn’t equipped to provide adequate space for future growth and amenities.

The project will be funded using $8 million in coronavirus aide, relief and Economic Security Act funds and $4 million from the capital improvements sales tax.

The goal is to break ground during the spring.
