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.
