KENNER, LA – A pre-bid meeting for prime and sub bidders interested in bidding on the various bid package scopes of work for the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport’s new North Terminal project will be held on Tuesday, July 21, 2015, at the Crowne Plaza New Orleans Airport Hotel, 2829 Williams Blvd., in Kenner, at 9:00 a.m.

The Airport Project includes a new 650,000 square foot, 30-gate terminal, a 2,000 space parking garage and related facilities and projects. Prime subs on this project will be subcontracting with DBE firms as part of the plan to meet or exceed the overall project goal of 33.09% DBE participation.
