Tampa International Airport holds meeting for public to view major expansion project

TAMPA — Anyone who wants to take a gander at the $543 million second phase of Tampa International Airport's expansion can get a closer look at plans during a public meeting today starting at 6 p.m.

The meeting is scheduled for the Airport Marriott ballroom.

Phase II of the project includes express curbside drop-off for passengers without checked bags and the commercial development of 17 acres of airport property.

It's all part of roughly a $2.3 billion, long-term renovation and expansion that will transform the passenger experience over the next decade and allow the airport to eventually double its passenger traffic to 34 million.
