City of Paducah Approves Terminal Project at Airport


At their meeting Tuesday evening, the Paducah City Commission approved an interposal agreement related to the Barkley Regional Airport terminal project. The mayor and commissioners voted overwhelmingly to approve this agreement between the City of Paducah, McCracken County and the Barkley Regional Airport Authority This agreement establishes that an equal portion of the terminal share will be paid for by the city and the county. The estimated cost of the project is $5.8 million. The airport is currently getting both federal and state funding as well as fundraiseing efforts that will cover around 87 percent of the total cost. The first phase of this project has already started and it involves dirt work and some utilities.
