Voters in Kansas City Pass Measure for New Airport

Voters in Kansas City Pass Measure for New Airport”

Their H-shaped terminal will have two concourses and accommodate 35 gates, and the arrivals and departure area has been split across different levels while still retaining curbside service.

Voters in Kansas City overwhelmingly approved a new $1 billion plan on Tuesday to transform the Kansas City International Airport (KCI). Expected in the new airport are additional restaurants and increased waiting space, according to KCTV. They said the single terminal would be less secure and less convenient for travelers. In the end, the Kansas City Council chose Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate over AECOM and Burns & McDonnell, which had previously discussed a sole source contract with city leaders for the project. For six years, perhaps more, City Hall has clamored for a new terminal to replace the current three-terminal format that opened up in 1972.

KCI and local officials have claimed that financing for the project will come from the airport's revenues with the City of Kansas continuing to own the site.

"It's a little bigger than I expected but it only goes to show we should never underestimate the people of Kansas City", said Sly James, Kansas City mayor. Edgemoor expects to finish construction in 2021.
