Screenshot_1ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Lambert International Airport will soon have a compressed natural gas station that will be open to the public.

Ground was broken today on the new station located in the Super Park Lot C facility at I-70 and Cypress.

Lambert has two other compressed natural gas stations.

But this new one is the first of its kind for “Spire”… which is part of the Laclede group.

The new station is expected to initially fuel 160 fleet vehicles like shuttle buses that are already on the road.

Lambert’s director says using more alternative fuels is the wave of the future.

“It’s important because as the airport, I think we need to be a partner in this region and we need to be the leader in the region in terms of some of the innovation happening and i feel like this puts on the map as one of the innovators and partnerships,” said Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge.

The new station will be open 24 hours a day.

It should be up and running by the end of the year.
