Airport World - Joe Bates
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) today celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony for its West Gate Expansion project.
The event was attended by dozens of Central Texas and Austin leaders that included Congressman Doggett, Congressman Casar, Austin Mayor, Kirk Watson, and Austin City Council members Vanessa Fuentes and Ryan Alter.
The West Gate Expansion project will increase terminal space beyond its current gates 33 and 34 totalling an additional 84,500 gross square feet over three levels of apron, concourse and mezzanine space.
According to the Texas gateway, the expansion will add amenities that children, families, and travellers of all ages will enjoy such as new F&B spaces, public art, more seating areas, the largest restrooms in the terminal and an exciting third-level outdoor public patio with amazing views of the city skyline.
The project will construct three new gates that will eventually offset the closure of existing gates during future construction activities.
