(WIAT) — 888 pages. That’s how many pages of contracts and construction reports were released by the Birmingham Airport Authority on Wednesday evening.

The Authority included the monthly construction reports from Brasfield & Gorrie that date back to February of 2012.

Now, the challenge becomes sifting through the large amounts of information to find anything related to construction or installation of the flight information display boards.

The documents include a few hundred references to display boards, but it’s going to take some time to thoroughly examine the documents

“This board will continue to be transparent and responsive to reasonable requests. The board does, however, have a responsibility to the community it serves and must abide by any federal and state laws and regulations that may prevent disclosure of some information,” said Kem Marks-Bryant, the attorney for the Birmingham Airport Authority.

CBS42 will continue to investigate, talk to construction professionals and vigilantly search for answers.
