Improvements at SIA include the expansion of the east and west concourses and additional ticketing areas to fill up the three other gates.

Spokane International Airport officials have solidified expansion plans to keep up with the needs of the continually growing city.

The first expansion of the Spokane International Airport in two decades, the project, known as TREX, will cost a total of $150 million.

"It [funding] is going to come from a combination of grant funds and a number of other things," Spokane International Airport CEO Larry Krauter said. "Between all the different sources of funding we felt confident that we could build this part of the project."

In addition to grants, passenger facility charges, CARES money and short-term financing contribute to the cost coverage.
