(Fox News) Officials for the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport recently revealed that its seven new Service Animal Relief Areas, which were installed last year, cost a total of $3.9 million.
The airport installed the seven dog bathrooms, one in each concourse, last summer, but the cost to construct them was made public only this week, Fox 5 Atlanta reports.
Airport administrators credited the high price tag to the complexities of building inside a 24-hour facility, which restricts construction to the overnight hours. Additionally, they said existing facilities had to be torn down in order to make room for the new dog bathrooms.
