BELGRADE – Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is working to improve its terminal and tarmac.

In addition to runway resurfacing, crews are taking advantage of less passenger traffic in the afternoon and evenings to resurface sections of the tarmac. With more and larger airplanes flying in and out of Bozeman, airport officials are working to expand the concrete ramp which supports the airplanes on the tarmac.

“With the larger aircraft we’re seeing flying in and out of Bozeman, we need to provide more concrete ramp, so we’re expanding our concrete ramp portion for the airlines so that the larger aircraft can park on the concrete and were doing some of that during this downtime because it’s a lot easier to work on the terminal ramp without airplanes than it is with airplanes,” said Airport Director Brian Sprenger.

The Tarmac construction has temporarily shut down Gate 5 at the terminal.
