Bomb detection plan for airport luggage approved
Written by Miami Today on December 8, 2017
A new 60,000-square-foot building at Miami International Airport will accommodate a federally required electronic detection system to detect explosives in baggage for the airport’s south and central terminals.
County commissioners this week approved on a 12-0 vote an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation under which the transportation department will send the county half the cost of the $24-million-plus building as part of the $38-million-plus project. The federal department is to add $6.725 million over the next three years.
The county Aviation Department is to provide $19.4 million of the cost. The system will serve the airport’s concourses F, G, H and J.
