Sacramento Plans $1.1 Billion Airport Expansion

Officials say they hope to begin construction of the new Terminal B by late 2008 and finish in early 2011.

Airport officials also are trying to persuade federal officials to move the federal control tower away from the new terminal.

Acree, the airport chief, said the terminal can be built with the tower in place, but the proximity would cause design and construction complications.

Airport officials have scheduled two public open house sessions to review and comment on the terminal designs -- 2 to 4 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. June 28 at the KVIE auditorium, 2595 Capitol Oaks Drive, near West El Camino Avenue and Interstate 5 in South Natomas.

Airport officials will incorporate public comments into final designs to be brought to the Board of Supervisors later this summer for a decision on a final design.
