Garver Studies Help ALDOT Choose New Airport Site

The Alabama Department of Transportation has chosen a location near Thomasville, Alabama as the site for a new regional airport that will serve Clarke County and parts of Wilcox, Marengo, and Choctaw counties. Garver performed the feasibility study and site identification study that helped ALDOT make its decision.

Garver narrowed the site selection down from 23 sites and used a number of factors to help determine the site. A recent article written by the Thomasville Times and carried in the Alabama Aviator provides additional information on ALDOT's selection. The site study proposes that the airport may feature a 5,000-foot runway, a partial parallel taxiway, the capability for aircraft to perform instrument-guided approaches, a weather system, refueling system, a terminal building, hangars, and parking.
