Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) is undergoing a terminal expansion to add nine more gates to keep pace with the increasing passenger traffic, and to prepare for the future growth of air service to the rapidly growing area. The expansion will increase the number of contact gates with boarding bridges at ABIA from 24 to 33, and is anticipated to be completed in 2019.
CAST CONNEX engineered and supplied custom castings for the construction of the new terminal at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. CAST CONNEX® Universal Pin Connectors™ were also used at the ends of tension struts in the architecturally exposed trusses that span the width of the new terminal.
