(KANSAS CITY, Mo.)
Kansas City voters approved a new $1 billion makeover for Kansas City International Airport.

Voters passed a plan for a new single-terminal design Tuesday with 75 percent of the vote.

The new single-terminal facility would replace the current three-terminal airport which is 45-years-old.

Some have questioned how the airport will be financed.

The city says it will not use general fund dollars or grant tax incentives. Instead, the airport will be paid for by airlines flying in and out of KCI and revenue from parking and concessions.

The new terminal plan calls for 35 gates and a new 6,500 parking structure. Passenger arrivals and departures would be on separate levels.

Edgemoor Real Estate & Infrastructure is the lead developer for the project.

A disturbance was moving through southeast Nebraska this morning and it brought clouds to northwest Missouri & northeast Kansas. It was cooler afternoon due to the clouds and the northeast winds.
