Renovations at Grand Junction Regional Airport

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- If you have been to Grand Junction Regional Airport lately, you've probably noticed a lot of it is under construction.

The airport is undergoing a $5.7 million renovation to the main terminal.

Officials say the airport is in need of an interior facelift, and parts of the building haven't been updated since 1982, when the airport was built.

In addition to roof repairs, and extensive work done on the ceiling near the baggage claim, the escalators, which the airport says are the only two in the Grand Valley, are also being replaced.

"We've really put a lot of thought and planning into the timeline with this project. Currently, the down escalator is being removed. So what we'll do is, when the new escalator is installed, will run the down one upwards, so we can get passengers into the TSA," said Director of External Affairs, Joseph Burtard.

The renovations are estimated to be done in July.
