CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The new Cheyenne Regional Airport terminal construction is roughly 70 percent complete, with rooms and baggage claim facilities clearly defined.
During a brief walkthrough, Danny Kintzer with Q&D Construction said the project is expected to have ample space for executive meetings, Transportation Security Administration presence and, possibly, a restaurant at the airport.
Q&D Construction is building the 26,500-square-foot terminal, which will feature a holding area for up to 200 people waiting to board aircraft, areas for baggage claim and retrieval, as well as additional space for screening by TSA employees. There will also be a 68-spot paved parking lot.
While civil work made up about $6 million of the overall cost of the project, the design and construction of the terminal cost an estimated $12 million.
Members of the Cheyenne Regional Air Focus Team are still in negotiations with potential carriers to serve the airport.
