(Hebron, Ky.) – Amazon is going to mark the start of construction on a $1.5 billion cargo hub at Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport on Tuesday.

The online mega-retailer will hold a groundbreaking ceremony at its new Amazon Air hub in Boone County. The project was first announced in 2017.

Amazon and CVG executives are expected to speak at the groundbreaking.

The hub is to be located on 1,100 acres and capable of handling more than 100 aircraft at once. CVG has already agreed to lease 900 acres to Amazon for 50 years, in addition to investing $5 million in new infrastructure. Last year, the company announced the purchase of about 200 more acres. 

About 2,000 jobs are projected to be created by the new hub, which is expected to open in 2021.
