Renovations At Roanoke Regional Airport Continue

Roanoke, VA - Roanoke Regional Airport is really moving along with its renovations -- with a major step installed Sunday night.

The airport's new escalator was put in - while most of us slept.

While it isn't functioning yet... it should be up and running soon.

In all, crews have finished updates to two passenger gates and some of the bathroom facilities.

Work is expected to slow -- as students get ready for spring break.

But it's expected to be done by July.

It's the airport's first makeover in 25 years.

The airport has been tweeting out Monday afternoon that some flights over the next couple of days are canceled because of the weather so make sure you check the status of your flight before heading there.
