Mayor Sly James celebrated a milestone Thursday in the journey to a new single terminal at Kansas City International Airport.
After months of back and forth, the airlines that fly out of KCI — and will ultimately pay for the construction — have coalesced around a $1.5 billion price for the terminal.
“We are at a point now where we have never been before,” James said.
The city has been waiting for the airlines to agree to a price before they can approve a development agreement. Until then, no significant design or construction work can begin.
