The old terminal was demolished and a three-level terminal with a two-level, two-wing concourse and 16 contact gates was constructed. The minimum of 10 fully operational contact gates was maintained 24 hours a day to meet the needs of the 40 airlines and several thousand passengers arriving hourly. The capacity of the terminal is 3,200 passengers per hour for arrivals and 2,600 passengers per hour for departures.
The new terminal was built in phases—over, around, and through the existing facility—to shorten the schedule. This was accomplished while meeting FAA security requirements, accommodating airline flight schedules, minimizing passenger inconvenience, and maintaining the project construction schedule.
Public access roadways were also improved, including a new two level departures and arrivals roadway, auxiliary roads, and parking areas.
