Hopkins Laying Groundwork for Terminal Project

Cleveland Hopkins Airport is expected to take the first steps this year toward a major overhaul of its passenger terminal.

The Plain Dealer reported that Airport Director Robert Kennedy said the start of the bulk of the work is at least three years away and will take more than 10 years to complete.

But this year’s work is expected to include utility work and razing of old building. Airport officials also expect to begin talking with airlines about how to finance the terminal project.

Airlines are expected to contribute a significant amount of the financing through the fees they pay to use the airport.

Plans calls for a $2 billion rebuilding of the terminal to create new concourses, consolidated security checkpoints, expanded ticketing areas and a new customs facility.

The project is expected to be completed in stages.
