England Airpark To Build 3.5 miles of New Road!

Alexandria International Airport (AEX) has been notified by the Federal Aviation Administration of the intent to fund over 18,000 feet of perimeter road surrounding the airfield. The purpose of the perimeter road is to provide an efficient route for security, emergency ARFF response and maintenance of the airfield.

The England Board of Commissioners have awarded the expedited design contract to Meyer, Meyer, LaCroix and Hixson. Under this expedited schedule, England is moving from project start, thru design, bid and award in less than 120 days.

The project will create significant design and construction jobs. The estimated cost is $4.4 million. The project will be funded from FAA Aviation Trust Funds and State of Louisiana Aviation Trust funds.

Building for the future. Jobs for the present. England Airpark is on the move!
