SALT LAKE CITY — A mass of steel and concrete, known as the "Delta Tower," came down at the Salt Lake City International Airport Monday, marking the transition into phase two of the Airport Redevelopment Program.
"It's just kind of a special day for everybody in moving forward with phase two," said Mike Williams, program director of the Airport Redevelopment Program.

At over 80 feet tall, the Delta Tower — known officially as the "terminal two ramp control tower" — was built in 1990. It is one of the last remaining structures from the original airport.
Airport spokeswoman Nancy Volmer tells FOX 13 that the expedited demolition timeline is estimated to reduce the total cost of phase two by up to $300 million.
