The San Francisco Airport Commission is expected to authorize request for proposals (RFP) on Tuesday to contractors interested in building the hub’s new air traffic control tower.
The airport’s existing air traffic control tower is seismically unstable, and could be damaged in an earthquake, according to separate studies. The Airport Commission will vote on whether to begin the contracting process at its meeting on Tuesday.
The new tower is not expected to be completed until 2014. Funding for the $81 million project will come from the federal government.
