Construction Activities

Austin E. Knowlton Executive Terminal and Aviation Education Center (August 2017 – October 2018)

Week of November 20

Construction continues "inside the fence", and is starting to extend "outside the fence".

"inside the fence"    Steel structure placement continues. Steel work is scheduled to be completed around the 2nd week of December. Pouring of concrete slabs for the first and second floors will follw the steel work. Masonry work for the exterior of the building will begin following the concrete placement.

"outside the fence"  AEP has replaced the power connection loop between the Hangars 4 & 5 transformers. 

Work for the storm water detention area and storm water line has encountered undisclosed phone lines in the path of the storm water lines.  A resolution is close, and work is expected to resume soon. 


Traffic and Parking is especially challenging at the moment.  Lots of mud, construction vehicles, and parking area closures are testing everyone. 

Please note the Barnstormer Restaurant WILL BE OPEN for business as usual.  Special pedestrian walk-ways will be established.  Please follow the directions given by numerous signs that are to be posted to guide you to/from the hangars and restaurant.
