OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — We now know that $20 million will land at Eppley Airfield. The money comes from the bipartisan infrastructure law and will go toward the terminal roadway expansion project.

The plans include adding a lane and an overhead canopy for the road. These changes are expected to increase capacity, safety and convenience. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2023.

The current phase, a new entrance off Abbott Drive, will finish this fall.
