Upgrades coming to Birmingham Shuttlesworth Airport

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Officials with the Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport are waiting until after the holiday travel season to begin a major construction project.

About$ 200 million in improvements are in the works.

A large portion of that price tag will come from passenger facility charges you already pay when you book a flight.

If all goes as planned, you will start noticing the construction work in the first quarter of next year.
