Logan Airport will see a series of significant developments over the course of the next five years and the Massachusetts Port Authority has already started officially warning of the traffic impacts starting this fall. Recently terminal B has also seen a major improvement with the addition of the Great Hall.
The improvements that are to come include expansion of Terminal E, the exaltation of Terminal C, the addition of thousands of new parking spaces. All of these developments are expected to cost $2 billion.
Massport also revealed a new website for the public to learn about the coming developments and to see what is currently under construction. A new “text alert program” is also expected to go live this fall, according to the agency.
Terminal E, which serves international flights to and from Logan, including direct flights to 56 international airports were built in 1974. It is set to expand by 400,000 square feet and get 7 new aircraft gates, a bigger ticketing hall, and “local and internationally inspired food and retail options”, as per Massport officials.
Terminal C will be subjected to renovations as well, with an increment of food vendors, amenities, and retail options. Refurbished areas for passengers before and after security will also be provided.
Terminal C will also get a new canopy with solar panels that will generate more energy than needed for the curb lighting on both floors of the terminal.
The Massport agency also reports for the roads between Terminal B and Terminal C to be rehabilitated in an effort to “eliminate backups and get passengers to and from the terminals faster”.
