The final piece to a local airport's new terminal building was hoisted into position Thursday.
The Albert J. Ellis Airport in Richlands saw the final beam set in place for its new terminal building.
The beam placement was a ceremonial gesture called Topping Out which, in building construction terms, is a traditional event that happens when the last beam of a structure is positioned.
Local leaders and construction workers signed the beam before it was put in place.
The new 67,000 square foot terminal is expected to be finished sometime next summer or fall and will replace the existing 5,000 square foot terminal.
It's hoped the additional space will help attract another airline.
The 39 million dollar cost of the new terminal was paid for through FAA grants, state grants, and user fees. No tax dollars were used.
