Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) has wrapped up a $29 million expansion project known as the North Aviation Development. The project, funded by FAA entitlement grants and airport revenues, saw the realignment of Gulfstream Road to a newly built 1,200-foot tunnel under Taxiway A, which was extended 1,800 feet to a total of 9,302 feet. The additional length allowed the taxiway to connect with the newly built new 4,033-foot taxiway H, which now links Gulfstream Aerospace’s new $500 million campus expansion to the rest of the airport. In addition to supporting the growth of Gulfstream–the airport’s largest tenant–the project gives SAV an additional 200 acres of land along the new taxiway suitable for further development.
