Hannibal Regional Airport’s new terminal project is moving forward again after the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Aviation Division recently signed off on agreements between the city and Crawford, Murphy and Tilly (CMT) for professional phase services on the project.
According to Mark Rees, city engineer, MoDOT was reviewing “technicalities.”
Approval of those agreements had been on the city council agenda at its Nov. 3 meeting, but had to be tabled since MoDOT’s review was still ongoing. Rees says the contract for development of the terminal’s plans will be brought to the council at its first meeting of 2010 on Tuesday, Jan. 5.
Despite the fact a contract for services had not yet been finalized, Architechnics, a subcontractor on the design phase of the project, has already been working on the new terminal’s design.
“They have been working at risk,” said Rees.
Because of the advance work by Architechnics, Rees anticipates the plans will be far beyond the preliminary stage when the airport advisory board next meets in January.
“I expect to be pleasantly surprised,” said Rees.
