The Sacramento County Airport System has been issued federal environmental documents that clear the way for construction to start this fall on the proposed $1.3 billion terminal modernization project at Sacramento International Airport. The project would replace the airport’s almost 40-year-old Terminal B to meet the rising demand for passenger services and improve the airport’s ability to attract new carriers and routes. The plan would add 680,000 square feet of buildings to the airport, along with parking and a hotel.
