55,800 Dump Truck Loads Later

ONE YEAR AGO: We deposited the first dump truck load of material as part of the Terminal Apron and Taxilane Expansion. Watch the project unfold!

By the numbers:
—55,800 dump truck loads deposited, weighing more than 1,171,800 tons
—10,973 tons of asphalt placed
—13 acres of space created
—Workforce of 56 people
—90,000+ hours of labor
—100% regional materials used

Why we did it:
The resulting space will accommodate construction of the new International Arrivals Facility (shown). When the IAF opens in 2023, the space will be used as aircraft maneuvering and parking space. Big things are coming with #BNAVision!
