Airport to make changes to terminal

The Northern Maine Regional Airport in Presque Isle will soon see some changes.

In March, the US Department of Transportation announced that United Airlines was granted the bid for service out of Presque Isle.

Since then, airport staff, along with the airline, have been working on plans to make changes to the terminal.

"We're kind of ending the planning stages," said airport director Scott Wardwell. "We have some significant alterations to the terminal that United is doing themselves and then some alterations that are being done by the airport and also some additional equipment that TSA is bringing in."

The plans are currently out for bid. Wardwell hopes to have those back this week and would like to see work begin as soon as possible.
