ATLANTA -- The Atlanta City Council has awarded a contract to expand the Concourse D centerpoint at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

This contract is a milestone in the airport's major renovation project geared toward enhancing passengers' travel experience.

"This expansion project will dramatically improve the overall experience for thousands of passengers traveling through Concourse D every day," said aviation general manager Louis Miller. "These types of projects are key to bolstering our reputation for top-notch customer service."

The goals of the project are to improve passenger flow, enhance the Plane Train and transportation mall, and add restaurant and retail options to the concourse. It will add nearly 60,000 square feet across four levels of Concourse D, plus two escalators and three elevators.

The joint venture of Holder, Moody and Bryson will complete the project.

Construction is expected to begin this fall and will be done in phases to limit its impact on passengers. The project, which is estimated to cost about $37 million, should be completed by spring 2014.
