Current Projects

BNA Vision is a complex undertaking with many moving parts. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to keep BNA a world-class airport for a world-class city. Here you’ll find the latest information on projects and changes happening at BNA.

New Parking and Transportation Center

In January of 2017, BNA broke ground on a new six-story parking garage just south of the existing Short Term Garage. The new garage will provide 2,000 additional spaces.

  • 6 levels
  • 2,000 spaces
  • First floor to be a Ground Transportation Center for commercial vehicles
  • Parking Space Guidance System
  • Capacity for 20,000 gallons of rain water harvesting for landscape irrigation
  • Green-screen vegetation wall
  • 50-kilowatt solar array on top level
  • Design by Akins and construction by JE Dunn Construction
  • Parking & Transportation Center to open Summer 2018

When will it be finished?

We estimate this to be completed by Summer 2018.

How will travelers be impacted?

Starting Tuesday, March 21, there will be a traffic light in operation on Terminal Drive at Nashville International Airport (BNA) to help relieve traffic associated with the construction of the new Parking.

Construction of the Parking and Transportation Center will require blasting beginning Tuesday, April 25, at 10 a.m. and again at 1 p.m., if needed. This single, large blast will take place at the Parking and Transportation Center construction site, located directly south of the current Short Term Garage, and will continue Monday – Friday at 10 a.m. (and 1 p.m., as necessary) for the next four weeks.

Interim International Arrivals Facility

BNA Vision includes the construction of a state-of-the-art International Arrivals Facility (IAF). To accommodate immediate needs for additional international capacity, the current IAF will be expanded and upgraded to serve as an interim facility while the permanent IAF is being designed and constructed.

Proposed enhancements include:

  • Increase processing capacity from 200 passengers per hour to 400 passengers per hour
  • Additional passenger boarding bridge
  • Upgrades to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection processing area including installation of self-check kiosks and screening equipment
  • New Concourse A corridor to eliminate the need for arriving passengers to re-check baggage or be re-screened by the Transportation Security Administration, unless transferring to a domestic flight
  • Design and construction by JE Dunn Construction

When will it be finished?

Construction will begin May 2017 and is set to be complete spring 2018.

How will travelers be impacted?

On Tuesday, April 25, the moving sidewalks on Concourse A will be permanently removed so construction can begin on the interim IAF.
