Kansas City Downtown Airport has nearly finished a $70 million refurbishment program. Begun in 2005, the project includes $28 million to raze and resurface both airport runways and $20 million to bulldoze 40 old hangars and replace them with 96 new ones. The airport also allotted $17 million for runway safety projects and construction of a $1 million general aviation terminal, which includes a pilots’ lounge and a waiting room capable of accommodating up to 66 people, an aircraft self-fueling avgas station and outdoor aircraft wash bay.
