Final beam raised at new Sea-Tac facility to open in 2020
SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — The final structural steel beam has been raised for the main structure of the International Arrivals Facility at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
The beam, part of a large construction program at the airport, was raised Tuesday.
The Port of Seattle is building the expanded International Arrivals Facility, which will include a 450,000 square foot hall for baggage claims and customs and an 85-foot high aerial walkway.
The addition also will increase the number of international-capable gates at the airport from 12 to 20.
The facility is scheduled to open in 2020.
