ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Construction on the new terminal at Albany's airport will be delayed because a subcontractor lost its certification.

Aim Steel, a Morrow based company, was contracted through winning bidder Wall Bridge to construct the steel columns for the facility.

But Aim Steel failed to submit proper paperwork to the Georgia Department of Transportation and is no longer certified through the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program.

The project will be delayed until another minority-owned company can be found to do the work.

"We're going to work with Wall Bridge to try and get their DBE utilization back up so that we can award the bid. We had hoped to award the bid in April. It didn't happen this month, so we're hoping to award it in May through the aviation commission and city commission. Hopefully, we'll get the project underway in July or August," said Yvette Aehle, SW Georgia Regional Airport Director.

Early work is already underway on the airport project including the paving of a new walkway which is scheduled to open next week.
