Ground to be broken on $1.5bn infrastructure project in Kansas

Ground will be broken on a massive development at Kansas City International Airport on Monday (25 March) which is part of an infrastructure project worth $1.5 billion.

A new terminal will have a total of 39 aircraft new boarding gates and the groundbreaking celebration will be a watershed moment in the life of the long-awaited project and will serve to kick start critical construction activities.

The project is spread over one million square feet, and it is the largest infrastructure project in Kansas City’s history and will have a profound and lasting economic impact on the region in form of new jobs, opportunities for local and small businesses. It is projected to generate up to 5,000 construction-related jobs.
