December 13, 2017

  • Began baggage system hanger installation
  • Continued work on enclosing the South Concourse-West, including first glass panel install
  • Started vertical work on the west tunnel, which will tie the South Concourse-West to the North Concourse-West



Photo Update



South Concourse - West steel


South Concourse - West enclosure


Terminal plaza


West tunnel tie in (this is not the central tunnel that terminates in the plazas on each end, but a tunnel in the middle of SCW that will be the only initial tunnel as the initial NCW does not extend all the way to where it meets with the central tunnel)


Central utility plant

Here is a link to the Dec 13 2017 airport advisory board agendas & minutes (pdf):

https://www.slcairport.com/assets/pd...a13Dec2017.pdf

Interesting stuff located in the AAB Agendas. I wonder if it is possible to access the report mentioned on page 7 containing information on the largest unserved markets and top 20 international O/D markets? Does anyone want to make a request to the AAB with the email linked on the agendas page at AirportRecords@slc.gov ?

The report also says that China is the largest Asian market from SLC but plans are restricted by the existing bilateral agreement and its restrictions. Nothing was mentioned about the upcoming DL/KE joint venture.

BYU & UVU To Get Free BRT, TRAX & FrontRunner Passes


Collaboration among BYU, UVU and UTA aims to promote clean air and reduce traffic congestion.

BYU News - Andrea Christensen - Dec. 14th
BYU president Kevin J Worthen announced today that beginning August 2018 and continuing for the next ten years, current BYU students and employees — as well as their spouses and other dependents — will receive free UTA passes.

“This is an effort to provide a service for our campus community that will also reduce congestion and promote clean air in the valley,” Worthen said. "We're grateful to all who made this possible."

BYU’s announcement came jointly with Utah Valley University, which will also be providing transit passes for its students and employees. Combined, the two universities will provide UTA access to more than 100,000 people annually...

And I'm continually amazed at just the FrontRunner ridership alone. 18k per day? Where do all these people fit? When I ride at rush hours there literally isn't even standing room anymore, they're going to start needing pushers like Japanese subways. Right now it ranks 10th in the country in terms of annual ridership, which is just crazy considering how many other cities UTA is beating out in terms of absolute numbers - Washington DC, Dallas, Seattle, San Diego, etc.

Downtown Adj. - Latest Update Pics, New Multi-Billion $ Salt Lake City Int. Airport

Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ http://www.buildingsaltlake.com/airp...halfway-point/



Isaac Riddle Reports - Construction of the first phase of the new Salt Lake City International Airport has passed the halfway point. The first phase consists of a new consolidated terminal, south concourse, parking garage, gateway welcome center and the recently completed rental car facility...The new airport will have over 70 gates and will be built to LEED Gold standards, making it one of the most energy efficient airports in the country. The new main terminal will be three levels and will be designed to reflect Utah’s geography, with interior and exterior materials intended to resemble the variable terrains that create a sense of place unique to Utah. Included in the main terminal will be an artificial canyon, resembling the canyons of Southern Utah...Besides rising construction costs, the ongoing construction project will require additional workers. According to airport officials, they have employed 700 construction workers so far but will eventually need up to 2,000 workers. Employing that many new workers could prove challenging as the industry is already underemployed...
