BALTIMORE — A Baltimore airport’s aluminum deck railing will be replaced after more than six years.
The $30 million project will allow more passengers to board planes at the airport.
The new railing is part of a $30.6 million project to replace a railing at the gate at Dulless International Airport.
Dulles Airport says it is the first time a major overhaul of a railing has been done at an airport.
This is a major milestone for us,” said Chris Burtch, director of aviation operations at Dullss.
He said the work on the railing began when a contractor found the railing was cracking in several places.
It was repaired and installed in January.
The work will continue through March when the new railing will begin to be installed at the new airport’s west gate.
