Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
ATLANTA -- Work will begin soon on a $48.5 million project to improve access to the world's busiest airport.
The city of Atlanta has signed a contract with C.W. Matthews Contracting Co. Inc. for the construction of nearly 11 new lane miles and five new bridges leading to the domestic terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
"This is an important project for our hometown customers," Aviation General Manager Louis Miller said. "When it is complete, they will have better and safer motor vehicle access to the domestic terminal."
Construction is expected to begin by Sept. 1 and be complete within two years. The work will be done in phases and is not expected to require closing lanes.
The project will be financed by passenger facility charges.
