Nashville International Airport is undergoing a massive renovation to the tune of $1.2 billion.
The overhaul will expand or improve pretty much every part of the facility. Plans call for new parking garages, a new hotel, and expanded ticketing, baggage claim, and concourse areas. A spacious new entrance hall will be dubbed the Grand Ole Lobby.
Officials say the move comes in response to Nashville's growing population and ongoing tourism boom. In the fiscal year ending June 30, a record-breaking 12.2 million passengers passed through Music City's airport.
The revamp is expected to be complete within the next five to seven years.
