The Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) maintains a Capital Improvement Program (CIP) designed to advance the overall mission of the airport by planning, designing and building infrastructure to meet the airport's current and future needs. Key goals are to maintain safe and efficient airport operations. Some of the key recent or pending capital expenditures include:
Taxiway A Extension
Proposed Completion Date: Winter, 2018
Construction Value: $20,000,000.00
Description: Currently Taxiway A extends from the north end of runway 17 to the intersection of Taxiway B at midfield. In addition to a rehabilitation of taxiway A, there are plans to extend it 2,700 feet. This extension will enhance safety on the main ramp and will allow for much needed additional aircraft parking space. The construction of this project is scheduled to begin in July 2017. This project is Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) funded.
Proposed Completion Date: Fall, 2015
Project Value: $627,560.00
Description: The Augusta Regional Airport Commission have selected nationally recognized airport planning and engineering firm Mead & Hunt to lead the consulting team that will prepare an update of the Airports master plan. This plan examines the airports existing operational patterns to create a growth forecast for the next twenty years. Once completed, a long-term facility concept is created that will illustrate the future potential development plans for the airport. The process to prepare the master plan will involve regular meetings with an input committee, represented by a variety of airport representatives along with a regional citizen advisory group.
