GREENWOOD, Ind. (AP) — Construction is starting on a new Indiana State Police aviation base at a suburban Indianapolis airport.

State police and Greenwood city officials took part in a groundbreaking ceremony Monday for the project at the Indy South Greenwood Airport.

The estimated $2.5 million project will include building a new hangar for police helicopters and planes and office space that the state police will lease for the aviation unit. The unit has been based at the Indianapolis Regional Airport near Mount Comfort just east of Indianapolis since 2014.

State police officials say they chose the Greenwood site because of its central location for the state and its proximity to Interstate 65. The new hangar is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
