The Sioux Falls Regional Airport starts a more than $5 million project this week to expand and renovate the baggage claim area.

It will double the size of the area and replace the three existing carousels with much larger sloped carousels, said Dan Letellier, the airport’s executive director.

“This is the last area of the terminal which has yet to be updated or expanded or renovated,” he said. “Initially, we will have two claim belts in operation, and later on we will have at least one new large carousel in operation.”

Work will be done in phases and is expected to last about a year. TSP is the architect, and Golden Rule Construction is the contractor.

The airport also is replacing 4,000 feet of its primary runway. Work started in April and is expected to last until early October. Design is underway for a project to replace the car wash and detail bays for rental car operators. That work is expected next year.
