Bricklayers Working on Tug Road

At nearly 600 feet long and 20 feet high, the Kansas City International Airport New Terminal’s tug road is nearing completion. Bricklayers have been hard at work for several months creating the tug road walls by placing each block by hand. Each problock and knockout bond beam block weighs 40 to 60 pounds. More than 600 cubic yards of grout was used to fill the walls. The road will provide the airlines an efficient pathway to move inbound passenger baggage being delivered from arriving aircraft to the belt that takes the bags to the lower-level baggage claim.
