Plans For New Minot Terminal Continue To Move Along

Link here to Minot Daily News.
Airport director Andrew Solsvig said the terminal design is about 35 percent complete and should be 65 percent complete by October. The goal is to deliver a completed project to the Minot City Council in January.

One design decision made this week was to include administraton and car rentals in the new terminal rather than continue to operate those offices out of the existing terminal.
Go to the link for an artist's view of the project.

Data points:
  • current cost estimates for the new facility: $40 million
  • with related airport improvements, overall: $75 million
  • federal funds will pay 90 percent of costs
  • city will seek additional federal funding for the remaining amount
A big "thank you" to a reader for alerting me to this story. 


  1. i see the williston paper has a survey asking , Does williston need a new airport.
    Seem like a lot of good airport construction in western ND ..

    1. The results of the poll will be interesting. The roughnecks flying back and forth between Texas/Louisiana and the Bakken probably won't vote, and they probably know the issue best. I do know that the Williston Airport needs more parking unless they've added some since last summer.
