Hartsfield-Jackson to hold public workshop on plans for Concourse G, cargo buildings

As Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport plans to build Concourse G, it will hold a public meeting to present the project, answer questions and take comments.

It's part of a federally-required environmental assessment of projects to build the new concourse and two more cargo buildings. The work is part of the airport's $6 billion plan for renovation and expansion it calls ATL Next.

The public information workshop will be held Jan. 26 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the airport's technical support campus at 1255 South Loop Road in College Park. The agenda includes a presentation at 6 p.m. that will be repeated at 7 p.m.

Concourse G is expected to have 10 gates, and is part of the airport's plans to expand to the east. The airport's master plan for the next 20 years includes a layout for Concourse G, as well as the potential for Concourses H and I extending east.

The airport will take public comments at the meeting and via email to EA comments@kbenv.com until Feb. 9, 2017.
