BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A project to modernize the terminal at Birmingham's airport is about two-thirds complete.

Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/UejcJD) that Tom Wesley of Birmingham's airport authority provided board members with an update on the project this week.

He said the airport authority has spent 67 percent of the $201.6 million allotted for the entire two-phased project at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.

Authorities say the project will mean more amenities for passengers and also bring the airport in line with post-Sept. 11 security standards.

Demolition and reconstruction on the first phase, involving concourses A and B, began in June 2011.

Airport spokeswoman Toni Herrera-Bast said the second phase involves the demolition and renovation of Concourse C. It will begin once the other concourses open this spring and should be complete in 2014.
