Construction at YLW

YLW is expanding the airport to better meet the needs of our growing region. Our multi-year expansion plans include our largest terminal expansion to date, fully serviced lots for light industrial and commercial business, new parking options, safety and sustainability upgrades, and much more.

Between 2023 and 2032, YLW will invest over $355 million in upgrades to airport infrastructure. This is funded through airport revenues and Airport Improvement Fees and is not funded by tax dollars.


Terminal Building Roof Replacement

We're replacing the roof on the terminal building as it has reached end-of-life. Roof work will continue over several phases, and once complete, 48,000 square feet of roofing will be replaced.

Guests at YLW may experience increased construction noise when inside of the terminal building. It is anticipated this project will be completed in 2023.

Air Terminal Building (ATB) Expansion

This month passengers will see changes to parking in long-term lot A, restricted access into the terminal building from the south end of the building (departures), and demolition work will start in the security screening area. Throughout this three-year construction project, there will be additional temporary impacts to existing amenities in the departures lounge. Guests to YLW should expect minor changes to how they move through the terminal building and may experience some construction noise. Passengers are asked to follow new wayfinding signage.

Terminal building guests may also see some construction activities on the second level of the terminal building on the observation deck. 


Airside Pavement Rehabilitation - Apron 3

 We are undertaking a pavement rehabilitation project on Apron 3 to continuously provide a safe operational environment for users. The project aims to extend the service life of existing facilities. Construction activities are anticipated to be complete by September 2023.
