Officials say work has started on the upcoming demolition of the Indianapolis International Airport's old passenger terminal.

Airport officials said Thursday that the current work involves waste removal and exterior preparation that's needed before substantial demolition of the terminal can begin. The terminal's four concourses and other structures built between 1954 and 1987 are all expected to be cleared by year's end.

Indianapolis Airport Authority director Robert Duncan says the demolition will make the site along Interstate 465 more marketable to developers.

The old terminal buildings have gone unused since the airport's new $1.1 billion passenger terminal opened in 2008.
