Salt Lake Airport Breaks Ground on Terminal Redevelopment Project

Press Release

July 22, 2014

Salt Lake City – Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker, led a groundbreaking ceremony last week for the Salt Lake City Department of Airports’ terminal redevelopment program. He was joined by Maureen Riley, executive director of the Salt Lake City Department of Airports, and Holden Shannon, senior vice president of corporate real estate for Delta Air Lines.

The event was held at the site where the car rental operation is planned to be relocated. It is expected to be the first major construction project in an 8-to-10 year program that will result in a new terminal and associated facilities at Salt Lake City International Airport. “This project certainly reflects our status as an ever-growing crossroads and regional leader,” Becker said. “Not only will we be creating vast improvements in efficiency and convenience for all airport users, but also doing so in a way that seeks unprecedented environmental goals for a facility of this kind, helping to address our serious air quality issues and accomplishing this all without additional expense to taxpayers.”

The $1.8 billion project is planned in phases and is expected to generate nearly 24,000 jobs and $1 billion in wages.

A single terminal is planned to be built southwest of the existing terminal complex featuring dual level access, new parking, and more spacious facilities. It is anticipated that the terminal will be completed in 2019.

The program is funded by federal grants, user fees, general airport revenue bonds, and airport reserves. No local tax dollars will be used.

Years have been spent analyzing options, soliciting public input, and gaining partner support for the initiative. The project goals include addressing seismic risk, providing right-sized facilities, solving operational issues, improving customer service, accommodating growth, and maintaining competitive cost.

HOK serves as the architect and HDJV Construction (a joint venture between Holder Construction and Big-D Construction) are the builders.
