Taking Off: Sacramento International Airport's New Terminal B



In 2008, the Sacramento County Airport System broke ground on the largest capital improvement project in the history of the County of Sacramento: "The Big Build." The $1.03 billion terminal modernization project replaced the airport's original, aging Terminal B to meet the rising demand for passenger services and improve the airport's ability to attract new carriers and routes. The Central Terminal B complex is three times the size of the original Terminal B with the two parts of the complex, connected by an automated people mover.

Over the coming days Capital Public Radio's Bob Moffitt will report on the October 6th opening and on the economics behind the new terminal. Joe Rubin is looking into some of the environmental stories related to the airport addition. And food reporter Elaine Corn will talk with some of the local restaurateurs who will be operating in Terminal B. And be sure to check out Insight host Jeffrey Callison's audio tour of the new facility.


Meanwhile, here are a variety of multi-media presentations produced by Capital Public Radio's Andrew Nixon.
