Baggage Carousel Replacement Project Begins
Tuesday, September 5, 2017
Travelers may notice temporary construction walls that have been placed in the B baggage area. Work has begun on a project to replace the baggage carousels in B baggage, which currently serves Delta and Allegiant passengers. All four baggage carousels will be replaced during the project, with construction taking place on two carousels at a time, leaving two operational to accommodate travelers.Each phase is expected to take about 6 months to complete, with the overall project expected to last a year. The current carousels are more than 30 years old, and the project is geared to prepare for the airport’s post-modernization operations, which will result in more airlines utilizing the B baggage area.
