After 40 years of searching for a resolution to Bradley County’s badly constrained Hardwick Field, a brand new airport will hold its Grand Opening on January 25th.
The new Cleveland Regional Jetport, located about 30 miles north of Chattanooga will open with a host of amenities that include a $1.9 Million 8,000 sq. ft. Terminal Building, a 5,500 ft. concrete runway, hangars for transient and based aircraft and more. Construction of the airport reportedly came in at a total of $42.68 million of which $19 million were Federal, $11.73 were State, and $6.01 were local dollars. Fund raising efforts are underway to raise private financial support for the airport as well.
