PEORIA, Ill. (AP) - Officials at Peoria's airport say they hope renovations in the works will help the facility compete for passengers wanting to fly international. Construction on a two-gate expansion at Gen. Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport is roughly 40 percent complete. Airport director Gene Olson says the $9 million project is slated to be finished in spring next year. He says it's going to add domestic capacity and set the stage for expanding flights to international destinations in the coming years, like to Mexico and the Caribbean.
