The Williamson County Airport now has more than just a new terminal. The airport has been renamed the Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois. The name was announced Friday afternoon at the grand opening of the $14 million terminal.  Construction on the project took around 10 years and the previous terminal was built in 1972. Demolition of the old building will begin sometime this week.
