Three construction cameras installed by Multi-Vista, a Pittsburgh-based provider, mounted on the roof of Concourses C and D and the Landside Terminal, are providing a bird’s eye view of the Terminal Modernization Program. Beginning April 1, 2021, contractors including Independence Excavating, West Moreland Electric and W.G. Tomko began early site construction and the first steps in preparing the future site for building a new 700,000 square foot terminal, a new five-story parking garage and rental car facilities that will improve the customer experience and modernize the airport with new tech-forward, health-conscious facilities.
In April, contractors set up barricades and safe driving lanes on the west ramp between Concourses C and D. They also began saw-cutting concrete on the ramp for slab removal.
In May, we began the concrete removal of some 300,000 square feet of material to prepare for the new terminal’s foundations.
