Atlanta plans to sell more than $535 million to finance upgrades at the world’s busiest airport, and may benefit from a somewhat slow week of issuance and an uptick in demand for munis.

Proceeds of the deal, scheduled to price Wednesday, will support projects that include a new taxiway, terminal modernization and an expanded security checkpoint, as well as a range of other infrastructure improvements at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
