Holland Construction Services is beginning the second phase of the $30 million MidAmerica St. Louis Airport Terminal expansion project in coordination with the airport’s owner, St. Clair County.
After completing Phase 1 of the four-phase project in 2020, Holland began preparations for Phase 2 in January, relocating the facility’s gas service and starting work on building the exterior shell for the expanded terminal building.
The 41,000-square-foot expansion is part of the airport’s four-phase Passenger Terminal Modification project. The new space will include a new security screening area, two additional boarding bridges, a service animal relief area, family restrooms, a nursing room, an expanded departure lounge, added room for concessions and renovations to accommodate people with disabilities.
Construction on Phase 2 of the expansion project will be complete within a year with a cost of around $13 million of the $30 million total. Once complete, additional phases in the plan include improvements to the original terminal itself, including electrical work and other interior updates. Completion of the fourth and final phase is expected by late 2023.
