A 198-foot tower crane is upright at BNA® this morning. With its foundation on level 1 of the terminal (in a closed construction zone), the crane rises above the central terminal and will be used to help build our new roof canopy. It’s quite a sight.
The circular formation you see here will be a skylight, reminiscent of a guitar and allowing lots of natural light into the terminal. It’s roughly above where the central elevator and stairs used to be located.
Here’s what the future BNA will look like (in 2023) with a distinctive new roof canopy, a covered pedestrian bridge connecting the Terminal to the Terminal Garages, and the renovated terminal lobby. As we say at the airport, “Hang on! We’re going places.” We’re glad you’re coming with us.
