GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - The new $14 million passenger terminal being built at Grand Island’s airport will be more than triple the size of the previous facility.

The Grand Island Independent reports (https://bit.ly/1JvooDM ) the new terminal is expected to be done in March at the Central Nebraska Regional Airport.

Airport Executive Director Mike Olson says the additional size will be clear to the 60,000 passengers a year who pass through the facility.

Inside the terminal, a mural on the floor will remind passengers of the Platte River. And a new jet bridge will allow passengers to board planes without stepping outside.

Federal grants are covering roughly $11 million of the project’s costs.
