Cleveland Regional Jetport

8,000 square foot terminal
5,500 foot runway

GMC provided final design and construction supervision services for the City of Cleveland for a period of five years. Scope of work included road relocation, culvert construction, approximately 3,500 feet of new streams, two million yards of excavation, a new terminal building, taxiways and hangars.

Phase I construction consists of Tasso Road relocation, construction of a 700’x48’x9’ culvert to redirect Little Chatata Creek, the relocation of an 18 inch waterline serving the Town of Tasso, and the construction of approximately 3,500 feet of new stream. Phase II construction consisted of 2 million yards of excavation.

Phase III was a $2.3 million, 8,000-square-foot state-of-the-art terminal building reflecting the charm and elegance of the Cleveland Tennessee area. Visitors and customers alike are greeted with a place to await flights, conduct business, or relax and enjoy the fireplace, fine wood furniture and even a water feature as one of the many “mountain chalet” design features of the terminal. There are three meeting and conference rooms, complete with Wi-fi, audio visual equipment, and a catering kitchen available for their guests. A dedicated pilot lounge, complete with recliners and quiet rooms, are also incorporated into the terminal.  Additional projects in this phase include a new concrete 5,500’ X 100’ runway and parallel taxiway, airport lighting, and hangars.

Projects that have been completed since the airport’s opening include: several corporate and T-hangars, taxiways to corporate development areas, a 100LL and Jet A fuel system, and extension of utilities to the North and South side development areas. GMC completed one of the first runway protection zone studies in the State of Tennessee and received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to let an existing roadway remain in the runway protection zone. GMC has recently completed a new 700’ runway extension and taxi-lane for future development.
