Construction will begin late this Summer on a new overlook for Charlotte Douglas International Aiport with the opening planned for 2024.

This will be the fifth such outlook since 1937.

The last overlook closed in October, 2022 to make room for new airport construction.

Along with views of the airfield and skyline, the new overlook will also include picnic tables, paved parking, restrooms, pet areas, two playgrounds and an area for food truck staging, among other amenities.

The new site will be located just west of the previous overlook site on Marshall Drive.
