HOT SPRINGS COUNTY AIRPORT RELOCATION


GDA Engineers is excited to be working with the Hot Springs County community to build a new airport north of Thermopolis along Highway 120. Their existing airport does not meet Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards. GDA Engineers is providing multidisciplinary technical expertise for this extensive project involving planning-integrated engineering design, land acquisition, surveying, and construction administration. Estimated total funding for the project is $20 million. Approximately 90 percent of eligible construction costs will be funded through the FAA Airport Improvement Program, a user fee based trust fund for airport development. An additional 8 percent will come from the Wyoming Department of Transportation’s Aeronautics Division with a local contribution of the additional 2 percent.
