UPHAM, N.M. (AP) - The second wave of construction at Spaceport America is about to get going.
The Las Cruces Sun News (http://bit.ly/GTEUaa ) reports the final built out includes the permanent Vertical Launch Complex facilities, the visitor center on the main spaceport campus, and the southern road to the spaceport.
Already completed is the 10,000-foot runway, the terminal hangar facility and the internal roads and the dome-looking Space Operations center which is nearly completed.
Spaceport officials hope to have the second phase of construction done by 2013.
