MIDLAND - Some land at Midland International Airport will finally turn into a spaceport.

Midland Development Corporation has hired Parkhill, Smith and Cooper to complete two tasks.

$175,000 will go towards engineering services.

The work will focus on roads, utilities and other construction, although the Xcor Aerospace hangar hasn't been built yet.

$50,000 will also be used to build the spacesuit company Orbital Outfitters Midland facility.

We're told the spaceport will be located south of the airport.
