SITE PREPARATION PLANNED FOR NEW AIRPORT
CONSTRUCTION; PHASING PLAN BEING DEVELOPED FOR
RELOCATION OF PARKING LOTS - April 21, 2010.
Hyannis – Site preparation for a new passenger terminal and air
traffic control tower at Barnstable Municipal Airport is planned for
July and August, airport commissioners reported at their monthly
meeting Tuesday at the airport. One of the first visible signs of
progress will be the relocation of several parking lots to
accommodate the site work.
Airport Manager Roland “Bud” Breault reported that Suffolk
Construction Co., the general contractor, is developing a phasing
plan to change the location of and access to some of the lots. “The
goal,” he said, “is to emphasize access, safety and security with
minimal disruption to our customers and airline operations.”
Breault added that the work has to be done, unfortunately, during
the busy season. “But we will develop a plan to communicate the
changes to the traveling public well ahead of time,” he said.
official groundbreaking ceremony is planned in the summer for the
$26.1 million project that also includes the construction of a new
vehicle access road from Attucks Lane. More than 80 percent of the
overall cost will be covered by state and federal grants; the
balance will be financed with airport reserves.
Design of the new 35,000 sq. ft. terminal is complete; the tower
design is about 60 percent finished, Commission Chairman Daniel
Santos reported. The new terminal will be built in front of and to
the left of the existing one; the tower is to be sited to the right
of the current FAA facility.
