What an exciting day to celebrate the placement of the last steel beam on our new Provo Airport Terminal! Even before its completion it is already proving to be the economic driver we hoped it would be.
With a potential $15M infusion to our local and state economy from each new roundtrip destination, it’s easy to see why this generational project has been referred to as opening the “Floodgates of Awesomeness.”
It was November 6, 2019 when we last gathered at this location for the literal explosive groundbreaking for our new Provo Airport Terminal. Talk about momentum!
Since that time, we’ve announced three new destinations to Denver, Tucson, Arizona and Orange County, California, as well as receiving an additional $15M in FAA airport infrastructure grants, the only regional airport to be in the top ten for funding.
Now positioned as the 2nd busiest airport in the state, Provo City is truly taking flight, but economic momentum would not have been possible without the collaborative partnership of federal, state, county and city governments.
The new Provo Airport Terminal will continue to bring an added economic vibrancy to our community and our state. We are grateful to all who have or will contribute to this visionary investment in Provo’s future.
This project is a shining example of both forward-thinking and fiscal responsibility. We are grateful to all who have or will contribute to this visionary investment in Provo’s future.
Notably, had we not purchased steel and concrete early, today’s construction costs would make it impossible to build this terminal. Additional our hard-working employees completed some work for taxpayer cost savings of nearly $2 million.
We are grateful to all who have or will contribute to this visionary investment in Provo’s future. In return, we are creating a Provo airport experience to mimic our city slogan, Welcome Home.
