Airport concourse project gets building permit

Posted: Wednesday, February 28, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- After months of delays, city building officials have issued a permit to allow construction of the baggage tunnel on Concourse C at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.

The concourse is a major part of an $81 million redevelopment project at the airport.

But Ron Watts, the chief building official in Anchorage, said the city was continuing to review the main foundation and steel permits at the concourse. Watts said he's not yet sure when those permits will be issued.

Construction was delayed for more than seven months because the building's original design did not meet local earthquake standards.

Seattle-based contractor Coffman Engineers designed the building and has been revising the plans.
