The Durango-La Plata County Airport (DRO) initiated a formal terminal development design project in September 2021. As a gateway and first impression to Durango, Southwest Colorado, and the entire Four Corners region, DRO must provide appropriately sized and modern infrastructure to support the growing demand for air service in our community. Passenger traffic at DRO has more than doubled over the past 20 years, and the terminal facilities are feeling the pressure of this growth.  The intent of this project is to move forward with phased design and construction to alleviate congestion and improve the passenger experience.

•  Phase 1A design was completed in January 2023, with construction tentatively scheduled to begin in April 2023.

•  Phase 1B design will begin in early 2023.
