The ConRAC and Bradley International Airport’s Ground Transportation Center (GTC) received the Airport Business 2023 Project of the Year in the Parking Category.
The project completed construction in November 2022.
Similar projects include the ConRAC Facility at Newark Liberty International Airport.
