Phoenix-Mesa Gateway plans $1.4 billion expansion

MESA, Ariz. — Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport has big plans to cater to more
travelers.

ABC 15.COM reported the Airport Authority’s board of
directors announced Monday the airport will undergo a $1.4 billion expansion.

Officials said the project is set to be completed in four phases. The plan
includes the construction of 60 airplane gates and 21,000 parking spaces.

They predict the airport will be able to accommodate 20 million passengers
annually.

Nearly 957,000 passengers went through Mesa Gateway last year, making it one of
the fastest growing airports nationwide.

The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation
Administration are also funding the project.

There is also an effort to privately raise $385 million to build two hotels and
office and retail space.
