On Monday, Alaska Airlines broke ground for construction on a $40 million aircraft maintenance hangar in Anchorage.
According to FoxNews.com, officials from Alaska Airlines showed off the plans for the 105,000-square foot hangar as part of the larger $100 million investment in Alaska, which also includes new cargo planes and rural terminal improvements.
The new aircraft maintenance hangar will be almost three times as big as the current building, and construction is expected to be completed by summer 2018.
Officials from Alaska Airlines and the local government were on hand Monday to ceremonially break ground on the construction, and they announced the project would employ 150 people while the hangar is being built.
The new hangar was designed by architecture firm McCool Carlson Green, and the construction will be handled by general contractor Kiewit.
