Mid-Michigan's MBS International Airport has unveiled its $55 million passenger terminal.

The Midland Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/SgBQ1w ) that political, community and business leaders gathered Friday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the airport in Saginaw County's Tittabawassee Township.

The 75,000-square-foot steel and glass terminal was completed a year ahead of schedule. It's expected to handle its first departing flights on Wednesday.

Officials say the terminal includes natural materials that are indigenous to the area, including copper and white pine. Pillars throughout the building also resemble towering trees that were inspired by the region's lumbering history.

Attendees included Democratic U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow, as well as Republican Rep. Dave Camp. Levin says they worked together to help secure federal funding for the project.

MBS serves the Midland-Bay City-Saginaw area.
