(Provo-AP) -- Provo city will break ground tomorrow for an airport control tower.
A ceremony will be held tomorrow morning at ten o'clock at the Provo Municipal Airport. It will come at the end of a city program commemorating the 100th anniversary of flight.
Provo Airport administrator Steve Gleason says construction of a control tower is among the biggest things to happen to Provo in a long time.
There are 150-thousand takeoffs and landings each year at the Provo Airport. The state is helping finance the two-point-two (M) million dollar project.
Gleason says an airport control tower won't necessarily turn Provo Airport into a major international hub.
It will, however, increase the possibility of airport growth and change negative stereotypes about the local landing strip.
