The Maryland State Board of Public Works approved a multimillion-dollar fund to renovate BWI Airport.
Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport is set to receive a $100 million makeover. The Maryland State Board of Public Works unanimously approved funds this week to renovate the oldest part of the terminal. Published reports claim the project will be funded with revenue from gate leases, fees and rent.
BWI recorded its busiest season ever last year, with visits from 22 million passengers, but officials say the Concourse C security portal and corridor have become clogged. Reported wait times have grown to 90 minutes.
The renovations will create space for more stations, and add new concessions in Concourse C. The upgrade will also allow passengers to move between concourses A, B and C without being re-screened.
