Tucson International Airport, one of the largest commercial airports in the country, is undergoing a $300 million remodel for the first time in 60 years.
The project is primarily to modernize and configure the runways to make flying in and out much safer. Included will be construction of a new full-length commercial runway.
It will usher in a new era of safety on the airfield and encourage new investment in the region, said Danette Bewley, president and CEO of the nonprofit Tucson Airport Authority that operates the airport and nearby general aviation airport Ryan Field.
