In order to meet the increased demand for air travel and reduce current delays, it was necessary to build the new 9,000-foot Fifth Runway (Runway 10/28) as quickly as possible. As part of the design-build solution, a twin cell 32-foot span and 36-foot span CON/SPAN® structure was chosen to serve as a service tunnel and a public road under the new taxiway.

The City of Atlanta authorized the airport to spend an impressive $5.4 billion towards its ten year development program. The Hartsfield-Jackson Development Program will modernize and expand the current airport facilities to accommodate its current and future traffic demands. Hartsfield-Jackson bears the proud distinction of being “the world’s busiest passenger airport” The CON/SPAN® Bridge System portion of the project was completed during the summer of 2004 and the runway was commissioned in 2006.
