MINOT, N.D. — Ground could be broken later this month for a new airport terminal in Minot.
Airport Director Andrew Solsvig says the project received a $6.6 million federal grant at the end of August. That enabled the City Council on Tuesday to accept the $40.7 million bid of Graham Construction Services of Eagan, Minn. The city is allowing the contractor to break ground, mobilize equipment and put in underground utilities and foundations.
The Minot Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/19irOTy) that the city is funding about one-fourth of the project, and the airport also has been awarded $18.5 million from the state in oil impact dollars for airports.
Solsvig says the city is awaiting word on an additional $3 million in federal funds before issuing a full order to proceed with construction.
