The Laughlin-Bullhead International Airport currently has two major projects taking place. There's the $3 million remodeling and construction to the terminal building expected to be completed by the end of this month and a $7.5 million runway rehabilitation. The 5,000-square-foot terminal addition will increase the size by 50 percent and the existing terminal is also being remodeled.
The car rental companies will get new office space and some queuing space that doesn't conflict with airline check-in.
