K.C. Consolidated Facility to Begin Construction

KANSAS CITY -- City Aviation Director Mark VanLoh last week unveiled plans for Kansas City International Airport's $90 million consolidated car rental facility, according to Associated Press reports. The project, set to begin construction in March, is expected to open for business in early 2007.

VanLoh addressed the City Council's Aviation Committee. Committee members decided to recommend approval of two major contracts for the project -- a $63.1 million contract for general contractor Walton Construction and a $3.5 million contract for architectural firm Bucher, Willis & Ratliff. Plans call for a 72-acre facility with a 70,000-square-foot central station. The facility will be closer to the airport terminals, AP reported.

Kansas City voters in 2000 approved general airport revenue bonds that will fund the project.
