Officials at a North Carolina airport have voted to accelerate construction at one of its terminals so it can be open in time for the NHL All-Star Game.
The Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority voted on Thursday to speed up construction of the second phase of Terminal Two so it can be in operation for the all-star festivities, including the game on January 30th, 2011.
The authority for Raleigh-Durham International Airport is working with Archer Western Contractors, Limited to open Terminal Two on January 23rd, 2011. The authority will incur some costs which will be reflected in a change to the construction contract.
Once the building is turned over to the authority, RDU employees, tenants and other sub-contractors will complete the additional work needed to open and operate the terminal.
