See the ongoing construction to build 39 additional gates, our new ground load facility, cargo and drive under the bridge between the main terminal and Concourse A that’s large enough to taxi 737’s underneath it.

The tour will look at our new Consolidated Baggage Reconciliation Area (CBRA) for TSA bag screening along with our new Baggage 5.5 project. The 5.5 project will connect the various ticketing areas in the Great Hall allowing greater flexibility in routing bags to TSA. This is essential so one area does not get overwhelmed when other ticketing areas are seeing light use. The total value of these two projects is $200 million.
