Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and partners are reaching a major milestone for the International Arrivals Facility (IAF) late this evening. The center span of the elevated pedestrian walkway will be moved down the closed center runway overnight, followed by a complex lift and installation sequence outside of the South Satellite.
