A Chicago consulting firm has made recommendations to the Southern Illinois Airport Authority.
Two consultants made a presentation to the authority on Wednesday. It included a development plan and recommendations for the Southern Illinois Airport property.
The consultants suggested relocating, realigning and rebuilding parts of the airport. They also suggested improving access to U.S. 51 and Illinois 13 to provide better access.
Consultant Aaron Gruen said the overall improvement effort would cost about $8 million.
