FAYETTEVILLE -- The City of Fayetteville held a wall-breaking ceremony to kick-off new construction at its Regional Airport. 

Part I of the Fayetteville Regional Airport terminal renovation will begin with replacing Concourse A, which was built in 1969.

The renovations also include a second level jet bridge with a ground loading gate that will service aircraft and two parking positions on the eastern side of the building. 

A new restaurant and kitchen space will also be located past airport security to accommodate customers who are waiting for their departures. It will also be available to customers on arriving flights. 

The Federal Aviation Administration and the North Carolina Division of Aviation are funding over $15 million dollars of the $17 million-dollar project. 

Travelers can expect the project to be completed in the spring of 2019.
