Maryland governor approves expansion of Concourse E at BWI Airport

The Maryland Board of Public Works has approved the expansion and renovation of Concourse E at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall (BWI) Airport in Maryland.

The board, chaired by governor Larry Hogan, approved a construction contract to build a three-level, 70,000ft² extension to Concourse E that will support growing international services. This included the approval of a US$60m contract for local engineering firm Whiting Turner Contracting Company.

The construction will extend the international Concourse E and modernize airside and landside elements of the existing terminal, while adding six new airline gates comprising two full-service gates with airline hold rooms and four arrival-only gates.

“BWI continues to set records and this expansion highlights the continued success of our airport, as well as Maryland’s flourishing economy,” said Governor Hogan. “This expansion will create new job opportunities for hardworking Marylanders, while bringing greater ease and efficiency to international travel, tourism, and trade.”

Other features will include a new electrical substation, added restroom facilities, new mechanical and electrical support spaces, an extension of the sterile corridor system to connect with the federal inspection station, and space for additional baggage make-up operations. The preliminary construction schedule is set to provide the new airline gates by summer 2018.

“This next phase of terminal development will ensure BWI Marshall has the capacity to support growing international service,” said Ricky Smith, CEO for BWI Marshall Airport. “We thank the governor, the comptroller, and the treasurer for approving this procurement.”
