At a cost of approximately $4 billion, construction crews in Utah are working on the first new hub airport to be built in the nation in the 21st Century. The Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) Redevelopment Project calls for replacing three aging terminals with one large, central terminal and two linear concourses connected by a passenger tunnel. It is the largest public service project ever built in Utah.
The first phase is expected to be complete by September 2020. No local tax dollars are being spent on the project, which is funded by user fees, primarily by airlines serving SLC, as well as savings, car rental fees, passenger facility charges and airport revenue bonds.
