ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Demolition work will finally start soon on the old terminal at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport.

The FAA has removed the last of their communication equipment from the building. Workers are putting up fencing around the building. The demolition is expected to start within 45 days. There will be major changes to the parking lot during construction.  

"Once the building comes down, they are going to put in two brand new parking lots. One of them is going to be a short term parking lot, which we have not set the parking rates for that lot yet. The other lot will be a rental car return lot," said Airport Director Yvette Aehle.  

The new terminal opened last August. The Delta aircraft parking ramp behind it will also be expanded. The last phase of the $3.5 million airport improvement project is expected to be complete in January.
