A newly released study says changing Port Columbus' name to John Glenn Columbus International Airport will cost an estimated 775 thousand dollars in new signs. The study was released in conjunction with a meeting of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority. It says the largest expense will be the large monument sign on International Gateway leading up to the airport terminal. Changing the sign is expected to cost 210 thousand dollars. Other expenses include 182,500 dollars for signs on the airport campus, 133,300 dollars for various marketing, administrative and promotional materials and 110 thousand dollars for parking lot signs. The airport was named in honor of the astronaut and former Democratic U.S. Senator in June. The 95-year-old was the first American to orbit the earth.
