Sandston, Va. (Newsradiowrva.com) - Richmond International Aiport has signed a $28 million contract to expand Concourse A.  The work will begin in November, and will add six gates to that section of the airport.  The work is expected to last until March 2020.  

RIC Spokesman Troy Bell says there is a need for additional overnight flight parking space at the airport.  Bell says there is room to add additional flights currently, but this will add the parking space, plus cover even more possible expansion.

The airport just set a record in August, with over 383,000 passengers coming through.  The work is not expected to impact any current flights.
