MSP Expansions

I have been browsing the photos of MSP and I have noticed alot of construction going on behind the Main Terminal. Does any one know what is going on there? Thanks for your help on this.

Okay, a lot is goin on. First they just finished a major shopping and eating area called "Northstar Crossing". Very nice. Second, they are doubling the parking garage which is almost or already done. Runway lengthenings and adding a new runway. If you can try to connect through MSP and check us out. It is a lot better. I probably missed some so go to www.mspairport.com

The most visible construction currently going on, and the one I get in my photos all the time, is on a parking garage expansion.

There is a 4th runway that is being built, but it is not parallel to another other ones. I have a new aerial photo of the MSP taken in December 1999 (it's so rare to have the opportunity for aerial photography in Dec at MSP) that I've been meaning to post...I've just been busy lately and I haven't gotten around to doing it. Anyway, the new runway is clearly visible on it.
