Going Up, Coming Down: Building a New Roof for BNA’s Central Terminal
HOW IT WORKS: The new central terminal roof we’re building is much higher than the old roof. Contractor Hensel Phelps built the new roof canopy over the old roof, and the old roof is now being demolished beneath it.
See the white columns and trusses that hold up the old roof? They once looked big, but they’re very small compared to the new steel that’s holding up the roof canopy today.
With all of this demolition activity going on, it’s easy to see why the central terminal is closed on the Departures level for now—for your safety!
