The Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners adopted a Capital Improvement Program at Miami International Airport that will fund up to $7 billion in airport-wide modernization projects over the next five to 15 years. The airport is projected to reach 77 million travelers and more than 4 million tons of freight by 2040, prompting the program’s initiation. It is designed to address the airport’s future capacity and operational needs through five subprograms that include a redevelopment of Central Terminal concourses E and F and the construction of two new hotels.

“In addition to having another record-breaking year in passenger and cargo growth, the Miami airport has also received a historic investment of maintenance and capital improvement funding that will transform our airport for years to come,” says Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, in a prepared statement. “My administration is focused on making the airport future-ready and providing our passengers with the world-class airport experience they deserve.”
