Alexander City Completes New Terminal Building


Alexander City recently completed a new terminal building to replace the old one constructed in 1964. The new facility, completed in 2012, is approximately 2,800 square feet and contains a manager's office, a spacious lobby/waiting area, break room, pilot's lounge with private bathroom, two (2) public restrooms, flight planning area and a conference room for scheduled use by the public. The construction was funded partially with two (2) grants from the Alabama Department of Transportation-Aeronautics Bureau and from the Alexander City General Fund. The new terminal building construction was necessary because of the planned construction of a new north/south parallel taxiway.
