Utah just built an International Airport in six years

Recommended Posts

Cost: $4 billion.

Impressive stuff.  Meanwhile we can't build F all here.


SALT LAKE CITY — State and city leaders have unveiled America’s newest airport.

The massive, multibillion-dollar undertaking to rebuild Salt Lake City International Airport, which has been under construction for the past six years, is about to cross its first finish line when its first buildings open to travelers Sept. 15.

That means that day Utahns — and travelers from across the world — will walk into a brand-new airport they’ve never seen before. Thursday, Utah officials previewed its opening with an unveiling ceremony to show off its grandeur and give the public its first look inside the finished product with tours for members of the media.

The $4.1 billion rebuild was funded with airport revenue — not taxpayer dollars — and marks the first major hub airport replacement built in the 21st century. It’s not a remodel or expansion, but an entirely new airport. It comes with a parking garage with double the existing capacity, a massive terminal and two concourses connected by an underground tunnel meant to make air travel easier and more efficient for people and planes.
