BWI-Marshall airport  in Maryland is planning a major expansion to accommodate future growth. Airport officials say the $100 million project will include about 8,500 square feet of food and retail space, as well as new restrooms, a nine-lane security checkpoint, and a connector that will let passengers move directly between the A and B concourses and the C concourse without having to go back through security. 

The expansion comes as BWI is handling more air traffic -- the airport saw a record 2.2 million travelers in July.

BWI's executive director says the Maryland Board of Public Works has approved the designs for the expansion, but still has to approve the construction.

The current schedule calls for the project to be completed by 2013.
