Demolition of hangar begins at T.F. Green Airport (KPVD): $980K project part of airport safety improvements

WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) -- A major demolition project got underway at T.F. Green Airport Wednesday.

Construction crews began tearing down a hangar which had stored planes at the airport since the 1940s.

The $980,000 project marks a milestone in the larger Airport Improvement Program approved by the Federal Aviation Administration last year, which also includes the long-awaited runway extension at T.F. Green.

The project manager tells Eyewitness News the longer runway will allow the airport to accommodate coast-to-coast and international flights.

The entire project is expected to be complete by 2017.
