If and when 8 million passengers decide to fly in and out of Albuquerque, N.M. in one year, the renovated and expanded airport will be ready for them. In a comprehensive $120 million project, the existing main terminal is being doubled in size while maintaining its Southwestern architectural style, a four-level garage is being constructed to hold some 4,000 vehicles, and new roads provide access on one level and egress on another. Civil engineering work to construct new aprons and roads is being phased with work on the terminal building so that passenger and airplane operations will be disrupted as little as possible. Preliminary landside civil engineering work began in 1986 and the project is expected to be complete on or before Jan. 1, 1989.
