Airports
North Louisiana's two primary commercial airports are undergoing major renovations to update their functionality and convenience for travelers. The remodeling will also create a better first impression for the region. The Monroe Regional Airport pictured here underwent a $36 million renovation project to build a new terminal building. Additional remodeling is underway.
