Kansas City's airport reconstruction will allow for more consolidated operations and expanded gate areas.

Ground has been broken on the largest infrastructure project in Kansas City’s history, a consolidated terminal at the international airport.

The long-envisioned $1.5 billion project is expected to be completed in 2023.

The new terminal will be built on the site of the airport's shuttered Terminal A. It will be more than a million square feet and house 39 gates. 

Among the early construction activities will be the demolition of Terminal A to make room for the new terminal. Terminals B and C, which have 60 gates between them, will eventually be torn down as well. 

The airport reconstruction will allow for more consolidated operations and expanded gate areas. The new terminal will also have modern shops and amenities, the airport says. 

The existing terminals opened in 1972.
