Great news for travelers: The New 14-Gate Concourse has opened, replacing Gate 35X and serving American Airlines customers who previously flew out of the gate. The building resembles its neighboring concourses while introducing a new flair to the airport's overall design. Construction began in 2017 and opened in April 2021 - three months before reaching substantial completion in July.

Between Terminal B/C and the Metrorail station, work is entering the final stages on two New Security Checkpoint Buildings with curved roofs between the Metrorail station and the departures curb. Most of the remaining construction tasks have moved to the interior, with no significant impacts on passengers. The new checkpoints are scheduled to become operational in the fall.
