Bonds Approved to Fund Denver Airport Redevelopment

 The Denver City Council on Monday gave Denver International Airport its approval to issue up to $1.35 billion in bonds to finance the South Terminal Redevelopment that currently is under way, according to the Denver Post. Construction on the $500 million project began last fall when traffic controls were installed on some of the facility's roadways. The East Corridor Light-Rail Line, which will run from Union Station in downtown Denver to the airport, is expected to begin in 2016. The project also includes construction of a 500-room Westin hotel connected to the terminal.
