KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - After a seven-year process, construction of a new single terminal at Kansas City International Airport could begin within weeks.

The City Council on Thursday approved a development agreement between the city and developer Edgemoor. It also approved goals for women-and minority-owned business participation and community benefits for Kansas City’s construction workforce.

The Kansas City Star reports a fourth document, agreed to by the city and seven airlines, outlines the scope of the project, its $1.5 billion costs, and oversight of airport development and construction.

Geoffrey Stricker, managing director for Edgemoor, said early demolition work on the site could start within two weeks.

In November, Kansas City voters overwhelmingly approved demolishing the current three-terminal airport and replacing it with a single terminal.
