Final Vote to Approve $5 Billion in Funding to Miami International Airport Expansion will Happen Next Week
Commissioners of Miami-Dade are scheduled to vote next week on releasing a $5 billion in bonds for restoration and extension of Miami International Airport. Earlier this month, they unanimously voted to approve the bonds, and a second and final reading is programmed for March 17th.
Approximately $1 billion will cover projects that already started, and the remaining $4 billion will be used to cover projects between 2020 and 2036.
Central Terminal will see the most significant changes, including the demolition and reconstruction of Concourses F and G. There will also be a new check-in area, and the curbside and exterior will be rebuilt.
At the North Terminal, four new wide-body gates will be included, thanks to the reconfiguration of the space. The regional gates at D60 will be extended and rebuilt.
The South Terminal will be extended with several new gates plus a new retail area.
The funding and plans will be organized to enable the airport to hurry up or reduce down the development based on any increase or decline in demand.
The total value equals to $4,015,563,000 when including the work necessary at other county airports like Opa Locka.
