Sacramento airport opens $1B, art-filled terminal
Sacramento airport opens $1B terminal, with giant, leaping rabbit as centerpiece for travelers
By The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) ' Sacramento International Airport is scheduled to open a $1 billion terminal Thursday, replacing a structure that is four decades old with a building that is designed to be a striking entrance to California's capital region.

The $6 million in public art includes a distinctive centerpiece that is certain to generate attention, a suspended-in-air, 56-foot-long aluminum red hare leaping into a suitcase that dominates the glass-and-steel entryway.

The terminal is among the largest construction projects in Sacramento County's history and created 2,400 jobs during the 2 years it was being built.

The new terminal, elevated people mover and concourse are designed to expand the airport's capacity to 16 million passengers a year.

The first passengers to use the terminal were scheduled to arrive late Wednesday night.
