Gateway Transformation - Phase II

Construction on the second phase of the Gateway Transformation Project has begun and will continue through Spring 2020. These improvements are focused on the airline ticket counters and baggage service offices, baggage claim, curbside, and ‘front of house’ areas. The main features will include relocating TSA screening equipment from the airline queuing areas, upgrading and updating the spacing of the baggage claim carousels, and adding food and beverage, and restrooms to the space near baggage claim. The project will also include new terrazzo flooring, new LED lighting fixtures, upgraded signage, and more.


This $30.2 million construction project will be completed in seven (7) phases over the course of two construction seasons (2018 & 2019). Major features will include: removal of the existing failing concrete pavement and replacement with 153,000 square yards of new concrete for future airport development and aircraft loadings; upgrades to the airports deicing material recovery system; upgraded stormwater drainage system and underground utilities to accommodate for future airport development; and reducing energy usage by installation of all new LED apron lighting.

The area outlined in red below shows the areas that will be a part of this project.
