ORLANDO, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – Transportation officials say they are making progress on a $2.8 billion project that will expand capacity at Orlando International Airport (OIA) — one of the largest airport construction projects going on in the country right now.

Construction on the airport’s South Terminal is flying, as the massive project will eventually bring 19 new gates to OIA. It’s necessary, airport officials say, because of Central Florida’s growth.

“The forecast that we look at on the short term suggests that we can be exceeding 50 million annual passengers before the end of this year,” said Greater Orlando Aviation Association CEO Phil Brown.

Last year was a record-breaking year, with 47.7 million passengers flying in and out of the airport. Officials say the airport was only built to accommodate 40 million annual passengers, so it’s already stretched thin, but the terminal will alleviate that.
