The first phase of the International Technology and Aerospace Park, or ITAP, should be completed by January, the airport advisory committee learned Wednesday.
The first phase of constructing the taxiway is a three-month project to prepare the current surface, reconstitute the surface base and install concrete. Greenwall Construction Services of Myrtle Beach is contractor of the job.
The $5.45 million project will include removing soil, preparing a suitable base and installing concrete with the ultimate goal of constructing a service road that will connect with the general aviation ramp.
The project is being funded by $3.7 million in Federal Aviation Administration grants, $1.3 million in federal utilities grants and $450,000 from the Horry County Department of Airports.
