Against a backdrop of Caterpillar construction equipment and hills of red dirt, representatives from Auburn University and area governments broke ground on a new terminal for the Auburn-Opelika Robert G. Pitts Airport.

“It’s a big day for Lee County,” Ham said.

The terminal will cost about $4.3 million based on bid estimates, said Bill Hutto, director of the airport.
