Demolition of terminal near

LAFAYETTE, La. – Demolition of buildings to clear the way for a new terminal at Lafayette Regional Airport could begin in a few months. The airport administration received an environmental assessment from the FAA and is advertising for someone to demolish several structures, including the former UPS building next to the United Airlines gate, Executive Director Steven Picou said. The work will include remediation of an old hangar, which contains asbestos and lead. The design of the new terminal is about 60 percent complete. It should be released to the airport commission and public in July. (Source: Daily Advertiser, 05/24/18) Lafayette is an hour west of Baton Rouge and two hours from New Orleans along Interstate 10.
