Project Milestones:

Pre-Construction

  • 2017: Design and construction planning.
  • Summer/fall 2017: Demolish aircraft hangars and the Airports Authority office building to make way for the New Commuter Concourse.
  • Winter 2018: Prepare lower-level (Arrivals) roadways near Terminal B/C by adding crossover cut-throughs and some additional pavement.

New Security Checkpoint Construction

  • Next phase: Lift and secure support beams above roadway (overnight work / daytime lane closures possible).
  • No impact on existing security checkpoint operations.
  • 2020: Two new security checkpoints open with space for a total of 28 screening lanes, connecting Gates 10-45 and shops and restaurants post-security.

New Commuter Concourse Construction

  • 2017: Fence off the construction site to separate it from the active airfield.
  • 2018: Groundbreaking for the 14-gate concourse.
  • Add fill dirt around the site and allow it to settle before re-grading for optimal drainage slopes.
  • No noticeable impact on existing flight operations.
  • 2021: New Commuter Concourse opens, replacing busing operations from Gate 35X and increasing passenger comfort and convenience.
