Project #6072

Terminal Expansion - Phase 1A

Durango- La Plata County Airport

Project Information/Description

Consistent with the 2020 Terminal Area Plan, this project includes approximately 4,400 square feet new building construction and heavy remodeling. This addition will add post-screening airline gate and hold room space, public restrooms, concessions, and utility development. Schematic design is complete, and the Airport is currently working to develop Request for Proposal (RFP) documents in order to select a construction manager at risk (CMAR), allowing for construction of phase 1A to commence during the first quarter of 2023. In addition to providing expanded and improved facilities for airline and public use, the project will also serve as an enabling project to phase 1B terminal development, but is also designed to stand alone and support aviation services should phase 1B take longer to deliver than expected.

Project Details

This project is in alignment with the Strategic Plan objective of Ensuring An Effective Infrastructure Network. Specifically, the project addresses the aviation strategy of implementing the Airport Master Plan. Adding additional gates will help promote a competitive airline environment to maintain DRO’s status as a regional hub for aviation services.
