(Cedar City-AP) -- Cedar City has a new design for a new airport terminal that would be spacious yet rustic, with more parking and other improvements.
Airport manager Steve Farmer says the wood, stone and glass terminal would be built in three stages to help offset the estimated five-point-four (M)million dollar cost.
Construction could begin as early as a year from now, with the airport ready for customers in 2004.
So far, the city has two-point-three (M)million dollars available for the project.
The bulk of that money comes from Federal Aviation Administration grants of one (M)million dollars.
The new terminal would be 14-thousand, 500 square feet, substantially larger than the current facility which is barely 800 square feet.
The parking lots would remain close to the terminal, making it easy to pick up or drop off passengers and the tarmac would include space for three passenger airliners.
