The Smith Mountain Lake Airport will be expanding after an unanimous vote of approval by the Bedford County Board of Supervisors.

 The expansion will include six additional hangers and a terminal building. It will be able to host seven to ten more airplanes. Right now, the airport can house 20 airplanes. 

Immediate Construction is to begin with a 63-by-60 foot hangar building that’s 3,780 square feet.

During the Planning Commission public hearing held in June, some citizens spoke in favor and against the expansion.
