The County Manager has stripped MIA's Director, Angela Gittens, of oversight over AA's new terminal project (Concourse D). An assistant county manager who is an engineer will now oversee the project on behalf of the county.
In a letter to the county yesterday, AA now wants to turn over managing the problem-plagued project to the county, which is what Gittens wanted months ago. The project has suffered numerous cost overruns and is eighteen months behind schedule, all under AA's construction management so far.
This will be the project that ate the airport as someone has quipped.
