BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - The Lehigh Valley International Airport will soon see a transportation hub that officials hope will keep travelers from wandering the property to find rental cars, taxis or buses.

The Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority on Tuesday approved a $5 million project that officials say would increase passenger convenience and accessibility.

The project calls for the demolition of an unused firehouse that will clear sight lines between the rental car lot and the counters inside the terminal. Officials say a new covered walkway will be added to keep passengers from walking from the terminal to the lot and the distance between the terminal and lot would be shortened.

Bids for the project came in higher than expected in part because of the project’s timeline. It’s scheduled to be ready for passengers early next year.
