Birmingham Airport Authority Begins Construction on $27M Facility

The Birmingham Times

A new $27 million Air Cargo Facility at the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport (BHM) is on the way.

The Birmingham City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to approve the vacation of 154,638 square feet of unopened right of way near the airport to pave the way for a new cargo facility. The vote came less than two weeks after a groundbreaking was at the site on May 24.

Construction is expected to take 10 months and be completed by Spring 2024.
