June 13, 2017
ROCK SPRINGS, WYOMING – Wyoming Governor Matt Mead and other dignitaries will be in Rock Springs on Tuesday, June 13th for a groundbreaking ceremony at the Rock Springs-Sweetwater County Airport. The ceremony is for the new General Aviation Terminal and Hangar Facility that replaces the outdated structure that was built in the 1920s. The $5.4 million project is 100% grant funded by the Wyoming Business Council, Federal Aviation Administration, and WYDOT Aeronautics Division, with no local match required. General aviation traffic accounts for a significant portion of the airport’s operating revenue. The new facility is expected to be operational by April, 2018.
