COLUMBUS — Construction on a new terminal and education building as part of a $20 million overhaul of Ohio State University’s airfield is expected to begin this May.
The Columbus Dispatch reports the $13.4 million upgrade to Don Scott Field was one of several recently approved by Ohio State’s board of trustees.
Whiting-Turner will be the construction manager for the project. Moody Nolan is the design architect.
Work has already started on adding more hangar space to double the airport’s current 50-plane capacity. The airfield, now considered outdated, is located on the northwest side of Ohio’s capital city.
University officials say the large-scale renovation will help open travel to both Columbus and Ohio State.
A comprehensive 10-year plan for the airport is scheduled to be completed within 12 to 18 months.
