Austin airport plans $1.72B in capital improvements to 2024
Nearly $1.72 billion in capital improvements at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) are queuing up for funding over the next five years.
Among the ABIA projects under consideration are a new $325 million terminal processor. The 863,000-square-foot building would process ticketing, security, and baggage.

Construction of a new $106.8 million taxiway delta is scheduled to begin in 2021. Relocation of one of ABIA’s taxiways and demolition of two of its existing taxiways total an estimated $268.4 million.
These upgrades are included in the city of Austin’s five-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), which includes numerous high-level, forward thinking mobility initiatives.
Among the near-term capital improvements underway at ABIA is a new 40,124-square-foot information technology building set for completion by spring 2021. The building is designed to protect equipment from non-natural threats and weather hazards.
ABIA officials said they are about to start drafting the airport’s next five-year CIP to refine existing projects that are sized appropriately and sequenced through collaboration with airport partners.
