LONGVIEW, GREGG COUNTY - Phase I of a five-phase, $4.2 million renovation plan is underway at the East Texas Regional airport located at 269 Terminal Circle. Renovations are scheduled to be completed by fall 2014.
Phase I involves lobby renovations inside the Henry Atkinson terminal, which will be refurbished and enlarged when it opens in November 2013.
With the reborn floor as a centerpiece, the renovated lobby will include a baggage claim ramp that is twice the size of the current one. The 10,000-sf first floor will also have a glass front facade.
A Federal Aviation Administration grant will account for 90 percent of the cost.
Toward the final phases, a covered boarding tunnel called a Jetbridge will be installed for passenger boarding protected from the elements.
