A major remodel at O’Hare International Airport’s Terminal 3 will kick off soon, Chicago Department of Aviation Commissioner Jamie Rhee said.
The $200 million interior redo at the terminal includes upgrades to security and baggage areas with more legroom for travelers.
“The new Terminal 3 will provide more passenger space, new concessions, streamlined checkpoints and more. And we’re excited to break ground on this project with our federal and airline partners early next year,” Rhee said.
“A completely renovated baggage area will further streamline the passenger experience and provide more spaces for airline support services,” she added at a City Club of Chicago event Thursday.
Specifics of the revamp include:
· Reconfiguring the U.S. Transportation Safety Administration checkpoint to allow for new screening equipment.
˙ Tripling the width of the passenger corridor between concourses K and L.
˙ Adding 10,000 square feet of concessions.
