The US$2.4bn project is scheduled for completion by 2020 and includes the design and construction of T1’s north, south and central areas; a new Boarding Area B with improved access to its 24 gates, new passenger loading bridges and new concessions; a renovated Boarding Area C; a new central area with improved spaces for passenger check-in, a consolidated security checkpoint, a new common use baggage handling system and baggage reclaim area; and a new mezzanine with connections to the AirTrain and the central parking garage.

The groundbreaking event will also represent the final public appearance by John L Martin, airport director at San Francisco Airport, who will retire in July after more than 20 years service at the airport.
