$2.6B plan to upgrade Terminal B at IAH facing approval delays
A $2.6 billion project to expand Terminal B at IAH may be delayed as the city's chief financial officer is pumping the brakes.

HOUSTON, Texas -- A new terminal currently under construction at George Bush Intercontinental Airport just got the green light for new security technology.

This week, Houston City Council unanimously approved the funding for the new Mickey Leland International Terminal's security equipment. The Mickey Leland International Terminal Project is part of the $1.43 billion IAH Terminal Redevelopment Program, or ITRP, which is expected to be completed by early next year.

This new IAH International Terminal will feature an International Central Processor, or ICP, with state-of-the-art technology in a 17-lane security checkpoint - among the largest in the country - as well as ticket counters and baggage claim.
