Members of the media and officials walk through the “headhouse” at Kansas City International Airport in April.

Scheduled for completion in March 2023, construction is progressing on time and on budget.

Even thought the terminal won't be completed for another two years, enough progress has been made that officials are showing it off now. Over $5.5 million is dedicated to public art projects, some of which have already been selected.
