Bradley Airport holds ceremonial demolition of Terminal B, opens time capsule

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTNH)– It was big day at Bradley International Airport Tuesday with the ceremonial demolition of Terminal B and the unveiling of a 63-year-old time capsule.

That time capsule had been placed behind the cornerstone of Terminal B, known as the Murphy terminal. In the capsule are pictures of the terminal construction, newspaper articles, and other Bradley memorabilia.

Terminal B’s official demolition will begin in 2016 to make room for a new transportation center.

“It will include a consolidated area for our airport rental car partners, 900 public parking spaces, a transit center with a bus stop for regional service and high frequency service to and from the Windsor Locks train station,” said Mary Ellen Jones, Connecticut Airport Authority.

The new transit center is scheduled to be completed in 2018. Airport officials say that throughout the construction process they are committed to keeping things convenient and state-of-the-art for passengers.
