Multiyear project will begin this summer. Cedar Rapids’ front door is about to get a $47 million face-lift.

The Cedar Rapids Airport Commission is expected to award a contract on June 2 for the first phase of a passenger terminal modernization project at The Eastern Iowa Airport.

The work will include significant external and internal changes for the 28-year-old facility — promoting what, for many companies considering the Corridor as a place to do business, can be their first impression of the area.

“A new canopy on the front of the terminal will include several features in keeping with the commission’s desire to incorporate local design elements,” said Matt Dubbe, an architect with Mead & Hunt, a Madison, Wis.-based architect and design consultant.
