CAA awards Bradley terminal demolition contract


A Massachusetts company will demolish Bradley International Airport's Terminal B, which closed in 2010, the Connecticut Airport Authority announced.

S&R Corp. of Lowell, Mass., will also demolish a viaduct roadway that runs in front of the terminal, which is slated to be replaced in 2018.

The work will mean that all lanes of traffic on Bradley's upper roadway will be diverted to the lower roadway just after the Sheraton, CAA said. The right line of the lower-level arrivals roadway will also be closed.

A new terminal will mean more opportunities for overseas flights, which Bradley has not had since 2009.

The CAA is trying to attract Aer Lingus to offer service from Bradley to Ireland. The agency held an invitation-only event this week in Hartford with an Aer Lingus official for local businesspeople to show their support for the service.
