HOUSTON, TX – The construction cranes are swinging out at Bush Intercontinental Airport as crews start work on the new Terminal C North.

Crews broke ground Monday on the $244 million project, which is a partnership between United Airlines and the Houston Airport System. The new concourse will include floor-to-ceiling windows, 20 new dining and retail options and a lot more room for passengers.

The new terminal concourse should open in early 2017.
