Parking garage access lanes won’t be affected, the airport says.
The canopies are one of the most visible elements of the airport’s long-term expansion and modernization project. They will cost around $125 million to construct, and will be 55 feet high and 865 feet long. The aim is to protect travelers from the elements and create a dramatic entrance to the airport.
To build the canopies, the airport will have to relocate some utility infrastructure and build piers deep into the ground to support the steel frame.
