DENISON, TX - It's out with the old and in with the new for the North Texas Regional Airport.
The Grayson County Regional Mobility Authority says they will soon be tearing down two badly damaged buildings. Those buildings lost parts of their roofs and sustained other severe wind damage in a storm last May.
Airport director Mike Shahan says they are currently taking contract bids for the demolition. The final decision will be made at the Grayson County commissioners' court in a few weeks.
"They were both damaged severely in the May 1st wind storm that we had here at the airport. Total damage on those two buildings was a little over $1.1 million. They're old buildings. There was a lot of asbestos and so forth," Shahan said.
Shahan says they're discussing building a new hangar with the $1.1 million they will be getting from the insurance company.
