ATL Installs First Modular Unit for Concourse D Widening Project

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) has placed the first modular unit for its Concourse D Widening Project.

This initiative involves constructing the concourse as modular units offsite and transporting them for assembly a mile across the airfield.

This process will enable the Concourse D facility to be transformed without disrupting daily operations.

ATL General Manager Balram Bheodari said:

“This project stands as a beacon of what can be achieved when we come together—uniting the vision and efforts of Atlanta Mayor Dickens, Transportation Secretary Buttigieg, Holder Construction, and all our dedicated partners. Together, we are not only enhancing our facilities but also setting a global standard for innovation and partnership in aviation.”

This groundbreaking moment for the US airport industry was celebrated with an event earlier this week, which included a tour of a modular unit in progress.

The ceremony highlighted the federal government’s involvement in supporting the innovative infrastructure project, as the 1.4 billion USD project is partially funded by a 40 million USD grant from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Secretary Buttigieg said:

“For a long time we were lamenting the condition of America’s airports. Now, we have the best and most innovative style of construction to deliver world-class terminals to the busiest airport in the world.”
