Construction underway at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – Construction will begin this fall at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport, as old hangars are to be demolished.

“The airport has been undergoing a lot of improvements. New terminals are being constructed and T-hangars is the next phase,” said Airport Manager Katrina Amos.

Eighteen existing hangars are being torn down because they are not repairable or occupied, and two sets of 10 new hangars will be put in place.

“This project has been three years in the works,” said Amos. “They have been in a state of repair for the last two years, they have been unoccupied, some of the doors are no longer working, and the building itself has become unstable.”

After being underfunded for years, the regional airport has started to get the necessary funding for the past three years.

Growth is expected in the airport’s future.
