Project 4:  Terminal Development – Concourse C Replacement

Project Description

The Concourse C Replacement project is expected to include the following major construction components:

  • Construction of a new Concourse C, located north of the existing Concourse C;
  • Integration of new Concourse C with the existing Connector Concourse;
  • Demolition of existing Concourse C and subsequent construction of new Aircraft Apron; and
  • Demolition of existing U.S. Customs and Border Protection Facility and subsequent construction of new Aircraft Apron.

The new Concourse C development is expected to include:

  • Ten aircraft gates for aircraft design ground IV aircraft with two gates acting as swing gates capable of handling both international and domestic service;
  • New passenger loading jet bridges;
  • Expansion of passenger spaces such as holdrooms, restrooms, and circulation;
  • Expansion of tenant spaces such as concessions, storage, and offices; and
