Montgomery, AL – Montgomery Regional Airport (MGM) has completed rehabilitation of Taxiway Alpha, its main taxiway.
In July 2019, airport leaders announced the start of the project as a new phase of ongoing efforts to improve aviation infrastructure at Dannelly Field and to support air service development. Work included milling, paving and surface improvements.
The $1.2 million project was largely funded through a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program.
“We are excited to announce the completion of a key improvement project at MGM,” said Marshall J. Taggart, Jr., Executive Airport Director. “The Airport Authority has an ambitious vision for this airport. Years of long-term planning have been undertaken to guide MGM’s development. This represents another investment into the vitality of our airport and our region.”
Amidst the COVID-19 travel slowdown, airport officials have continued to strategically chart future expansion. MGM is moving forward with the development of its master plan and expects planned improvements to proceed: including, rebuilding the FBO; adding an additional baggage carousel; constructing a rental car facility, and developing plans for an airport hotel.
