BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Expansion work at Bellingham International Airport has comes to a symbolic end.

Congressman Rick Larsen and other dignitaries were on hand to cut the ribbon on the terminal expansion yesterday.

Larsen praises the project, saying more than 1,400 jobs are created by the airport and visitors spent over $70 million locally just last year.

Nearly $600,000 people flew out of the Bellingham airport in 2013.

The $38 million airport expansion took several years to complete.

Travelers will be happy to know that they’ll no longer be forced to weave in and out of construction zones.
