Morrisville, N.C. — Renovations to the aging Terminal 1 at Raleigh-Durham International Airport could cost $60 million, the RDU Airport Authority learned Thursday.
The authority's Capital Projects Team said construction on the sprawling, blue-walled building formerly known as Terminal A could begin in early 2012 and be completed about 18 months later.
Construction on the southern half of Terminal 2 is on schedule to be finished early next year, officials said. The north concourse of the terminal opened two years ago.
RDU spent about $570 million to build Terminal 2, which has 32 gates and handles most of the airlines that fly into the airport.
