This $341 million project
consists of a new multi-level connector building between Terminals D and E, a
50,000 square foot addition to the Terminal E concourse, a 9,000 square foot
connector building between Baggage Claims D and E, and various renovations to
areas within the two terminals and the adjacent Satellite Thermal Plant.
Phases 1A and 1B are the new
multi-level connector building between Terminals D and E. The first level
houses a new baggage make-up area that will replace the existing bag make-up in
each of the terminals. This area also contains an Explosive Detection System
(EDS) to be operated by the TSA as part of an in-line baggage screening system.
The second level includes a 14-lane passenger security screening area serving
both terminals. On the third level are
the Division of Aviation offices. Phase 1A, consisting of site work, building
foundations, utility relocation and structural steel placement for the
connector building, is complete. Phase IB included the building envelope and
interior fit out to complete the connector building.
Phase 2 modifications will
include an increase of 23 ticket counter positions with larger queuing spaces,
increased public circulation, new concessions, renovation of other tenant
spaces, and expansion of the D and E Bag Claim facilities. The Bag Claim buildings for Terminals D and E
will be connected with a one-story addition that will contain two new baggage
carousels and the existing facilities will be renovated.
E Terminal and E Concourse
were expanded in Phase 3 with the construction of a 2-level addition at the end
of the concourse. Airline Operations space is at ground level while the second
level provides hold rooms, concessions, rest rooms, and operations space to
accommodate three new gates and four relocated gates.
