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. The expansion is funded through airport revenues and Airport Improvement Fees and is not funded by tax dollars.

Construction Impacts

Roadwork on Airport Way is being completed on May 8 & 9. Directional signage will be in place and traffic controllers will be one site to direct vehicles. 

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.

This work is currently taking place over the White Spot, pre-security, and check-in area. Guests at YLW will experience increased construction noise when inside of the terminal building. It is anticipated this phase of work to be completed in early summer 2023.

Air Terminal Building (ATB) Expansion

Work continues to progress to prepare for the ATB expansion project starting later this year.

Passengers will continue to see construction activities at the airport, including work on gates 8 – 9 and closure of areas of the long-term parking lot. In May, we will see the removal of bridge 8 and the transition from the airside corridor to an outdoor covered walkway for gates 8 -9.
