............Out With The Old & In With The New

A New Airport For Salt Lake City...Just as everyone had settled into the idea of an upgrade here and a remodel there for Salt Lake's burgeoning airport hub, it has been announced that this booming Capital will throw the old plans out the window. Salt Lake City will now begin the process of building a spectacular new airport. Plans have already begun in earnest and construction is set to commence next year.

Salt Lake City airport overhaul finally taking flight


(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Having secured airline support to help in paying the $1.8 billion-plus tab, the city is moving forward with plans for an overhaul. Construction is expected to begin next year, with occupancy in a new, single terminal happening in 2018.

...Salt Lake City is throttling up the jets on its long-delayed airport reconstruction plan, plotting a $1.8 billion makeover to break ground next year with freshly secured airline support...

...A new airport with striking views of the mountains and a window to the future as a major hub would "express our ascendancy" as a city, Becker said in his State of the City address.

"Visitors to the airport," he said, "should experience a wonderful gateway to Salt Lake City, to our state and to the Intermountain West."

"It has been years of stop and go," the mayor said before his speech, with previous hopes dashed by, among other snags, post-9/11 business uncertainty and Delta’s bankruptcy restructuring...

The intentions of the revised terminal layout for SLC Airport are for one brand-new main terminal and two concourses. Here, we see that the new main terminal with Concourses B, C, and D retained. This may last until at least one of the new concourses is erected.

Yes, that is correct; that is what the article said.

You can follow the SLC Airport rebuild here (it's like the UTA construction page they did for the Airport TRAX extension).

http://www.slcairport.com/thenewslc.asp

They have an updated timeline for the schedule for the construction and different dates for design finalizations.
