CLEVELAND - Just in time to welcome the 2016 Republican National Convention, Mayor Frank Jackson held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the finish of $36 million in renovations at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
The renovations began a year ago and include a $26 million terminal facade renovation as well as a $10 million parking canopy project. Also included in the renovations are updates to the interior and exterior of the ticketing and baggage claim levels and enhanced parking for travelers.
Passengers will also see new finishes to counters and woodwork, energy-efficient lighting, revolving entry and exit doors and a higher ceiling with floor to ceiling windows that will let in more natural light.
Also today, the American Society of Civil Engineers awarded Cleveland Hopkins with a plaque honoring CLE as a historic engineering landmark.
