SALT LAKE CITY — The phrase "Out with the old, in with the new" fits perfectly at the Salt Lake City Airport as demolition teams have begun tearing told down the older sections of the facility.

Concourse A West at the new Salt Lake City Airport opened in September and has already proven to be a big hit among travelers. But while the city celebrates the new building, it is time for the old one to come down.

Big-D Construction says the demolition process is currently underway at the former airport. Ironically, the company tearing down the old facility helped build the $4.1 billion new terminal and rental service areas.

Phase II of the new airport is expected to be completed by early 2025 and will welcome nearly 34 million passengers a year, according to the construction company.
