Idaho Falls Regional Airport (IDA), the state’s second busiest airport, is to benefit from an 18,000 sq ft expansion.
The airport recently awarded Clayco, a full-service, fully integrated design-build construction firm, the construction management contract for the IDA terminal renovation and expansion. Idaho Falls-based Construction Solutions Company will be Clayco’s associate team member on the project, with the two firms working as a part of a single integrated team to complete the work on the project.
This project marks a significant milestone towards fulfilling our vision of an efficient and premier travel experience
The $45m project, funded through federal airport funding, is expected to begin in early 2024 and finish by 2026. It will significantly expand and replace the outbound baggage system and expand the ticketing and central lobby and other spaces for essential airport functions. Construction will also include significant, critical upgrades to the terminal’s mechanical, electrical, communication, and plumbing systems.
“We look forward to joining forces with Clayco on this project, which marks a significant milestone towards fulfilling our vision of an efficient and premier travel experience for passengers,” said Idaho Falls Mayor Rebecca Casper. “This project allows us to expand future travel opportunities for passengers from throughout the entire region as IDA continually looks to bring more routes and airlines to the airport. We are also thrilled this project can be completed without placing any burden on our local property taxpayers.”
Our objective is to align the airport's aesthetic appeal with the natural wonders of Idaho
The airport will remain open to passenger service throughout the phased project.
