South Bend Airport building capacity with $70M repavement project

Classes resume this week at the University of Notre Dame, meaning South Bend's busiest travel season is just around the corner. And, as Marcus Freeman and the Fighting Irish ramp up practice before their home opener Sept. 2 against Tennessee State, South Bend International Airport CEO Mike Daigle is prepping his team for an expected increase in traffic brought by game day fans.

Notre Dame fans historically travel well, Daigle said, but training staff for this year's football travel season comes with an additional set of considerations.

The airport is midway through a multi-year, $70 million terminal apron and taxiway reconstruction project that is decades in the making. Since terminal apron construction began this spring, the airport has closed a couple gates at a time to not only replace aging concrete nearest the airport's nine-gate concourse, but also to dig up nearly 35,000 cubic yards of dirt to lessen the height of its terminal apron, the section of concrete closest to the airport gates where planes park to board passengers.
