AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A northeast Ohio airport will expand parking and make other improvements as part of its $110-million upgrade.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1E9TzBc) that the president of the Akron-Canton Airport says construction will soon begin on an $11.6-million project to widen the entrance road loop, giving customers more room for drop-offs and additional space for covered parking and short-term parking.

The airport also is spending $2.7 million to upgrade the ticket wing. The cost of these projects will come from Federal Aviation Administration airport improvement funds, passenger facility fees and airport operating revenue.

They are the latest developments in a 10-year, $110-million capital improvement plan launched in 2008. Officials say the expansion and replacement of gates and construction of a customs facility could be finished in 2018.
