“Updates here include reconstructing the drive curb to follow the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), installation of the front glass walls to showcase more natural light and construction of a new passenger assistance center that will include restrooms,” Slaybaugh said.

The construction is scheduled to begin in January and be completed by August, according to the airport.

>> Major changes are happening at local airports

The airline ticket counter entrance and meditation room will be closed and the curbside check-in will not be available during the construction, according to the Dayton Airport. A new meditation space will open after renovation.
