Raising the Roof: Canopy Construction Begins in October

Remember the cranes we showed you last week? And remember the distinctive roof canopy you’ve seen in BNA Vision renderings the last couple of years? Well, canopy construction gets underway in October.

Hensel Phelps shows how it will get built in this video. From renderings to reality!

Quick facts:

  • The new canopy will be 695 feet long and 224 feet wide.
  • It will stretch from the west face of Terminal Garage 1 (directly across from the Terminal) to the end of the new International Arrivals Facility.
  • At its highest point, the canopy will stand 105 feet off of Level 1 of Terminal Drive, making it taller than the guitar pick elevator lobby canopy on Terminal Garage 2 (91 feet high).
  • A pedestrian bridge will be built just beneath the canopy, allowing passengers to cross Terminal Drive above traffic to move between the Terminal and Terminal Garage 1.

With nearly 18.3 million passengers in 2019, Nashville International Airport (BNA) has been one of the fastest growing airports in North America. According to a recent study, in 2018 alone, BNA generated more than $7.1 billion in total economic impact, supported more than 67,000 jobs in the region, and produced more than $392 million in state, local and federal taxes. BNA receives no local tax dollars. For more information, visit Follow us on Facebook: @NashvilleInternationalAirport, Twitter: @Fly_Nashville and Instagram: @FlyNashville.
