DOWAGIAC, Mich. (AP) — Construction is expected to start this summer on a new terminal for a southwestern Michigan airport.
Dowagiac City Manager Kevin Anderson tells The Herald-Palladium of St. Joseph for a story Sunday that the estimated cost will be between $350,000 and $400,000.
Most of the funding will come from the state Department of Transportation’s Aviation Division.
Anderson says the current terminal at the Dowagiac airport was built in the 1940s and “needs a lot of maintenance.”
He adds that “the roof is in bad shape” and the building is not well-insulated.
Bids for the construction project are expected to go out next month.
Dowagiac is southwest of Grand Rapids.
