Get more convenience and amazing views the Terminal 3 Modernization Project enters its final phase.
The Terminal 3 Modernization Project will enhance the customer experience for travelers by providing a more efficient way of getting through the terminal. The modernization is planned as three distinct components to maximize flexibility and minimize impact to travelers.
Major attributes of the program are:
- Consolidated security checkpoint
- Additional ticket counters
- Additional baggage processing capacity
- Additional baggage claim carousels
- New and expanded food concessions and retail
- Additional gates as needed
- Expanded curb for drop-off and pickup
The entire program represents an approximate cost of $590 million (in 2014 dollars.) Although the construction will be completed in individual components, the completion of the project is expected in 2020.
