Construction at YLW
YLW is expanding the airport to better meet the needs of our growing region. Our multi-year expansion plans include our largest terminal expansion to date, fully serviced lots for light industrial and commercial business, new parking options, safety and sustainability upgrades, and much more.
Between 2023 and 2032, YLW will invest over $355 million in upgrades to airport infrastructure. This is funded through airport revenues and Airport Improvement Fees and is not funded by tax dollars.
Air Terminal Building (ATB) Expansion
This month passengers will see changes to parking in long-term lot A, restricted access into the terminal building from the south end of the building (departures), and demolition work will start in the security screening area. Throughout this three-year construction project, there will be additional temporary impacts to existing amenities in the departures lounge. Guests to YLW should expect minor changes to how they move through the terminal building and may experience some construction noise. Passengers are asked to follow new wayfinding signage.
Terminal building guests may also see some construction activities on the second level of the terminal building on the observation deck.
Combined Operations Building (COB) Expansion Project
On February 12, we anticipate there will be temporary closures along Airport Way, including delays or detours. Anyone using Airport Way is asked to follow road signage and traffic flaggers on site.
