Billings Logan International Airport, an air gateway to Yellowstone National Park as well as Montana’s largest city, will build a new terminal as part of an improvement project launching this autumn.

Ktvq.com reports that $50.5 million will be spent on airport terminal expansion through until 2024, while ABC Fox Montana reports that the five-phase project will begin in September.

The first phase will include an expanded security queuing area, with the new terminal building, a children’s play room, restaurants and concessions coming later.

“About 40 million in construction costs and then we’re going to buy new jet bridges, we’ve got to put in all the things that go along with that,” said Airport Director Kevin Ploehn.

“Seating, wifi connectivity, bars, lounges. All those things. So, it’s going to be a fair amount of money before it’s all said and done.”

The new terminal is expected to be completed by 2023. The Billings Gazette reported that the project will include expanding the number of gates at the airport from five to eight.

Both existing concourses at the airport will be renovated, and plans call for the airport to remain fully operational during the construction project.
