Traffic & Pedestrian Pattern Updates Passengers should expect lane reductions upon entering terminal property from Brooks Avenue. A crane remains onsite and installation of terminal entrance canopy steel on the lower east outer roadway has commenced. The tensile fabric covering will be installed on the lower east outer canopy next week. Contractors are progressing on pouring the concrete buttress bases and barrier wall along the sidewalk adjacent to the baggage claim in front of the terminal. Grading has commenced adjacent to the parking garage for landscaping. Replacement of light poles with new LED light poles has started and roadway wayfinding signage is being painted and updated. The Upper Level Departures roadway remains CLOSED until project completion at the end of October 2018. All traffic must use the Lower Level Roadway for both Arrivals & Departures. Family and friends picking up passengers are highly encouraged to stage in the new Smart Phone Lot, to reduce curbside congestion, until they have been notified that their party is at the curb with luggage ready for pick up.

The Arrivals Level remains impacted with detours for various entrances and exits to the terminal and related crosswalks. Shuttle, Rideshare and RTS Bus Pick Up is taking place at the EAST end of the arrivals roadway, marked with a GREEN #16 at Lower Exit B. Valet Operations have been suspended until the Fall of 2018.

Demolition continues in the Rotunda areas connected to the concourses to prepare space for the concessions and the Strong Museum of Play Interactive Play Zones. Refinement continues on the newly installed LED lighting que system for assistive communication tied into the flight information display system (FIDS).
Security Update Four lanes of the newly designed passenger security checkpoint have opened in their permanent location. Passengers may notice lane changes for TSA PreCheck and Priority Lanes have shifted. Signage is evolving and Airport Ambassadors are assisting during peak volume hours. Work continues on the other side of the passenger security checkpoint to complete the transformation of the center of the terminal. Four passenger screening checkpoint lanes are operational in the new space. During high volume travel periods, the secondary passenger security checkpoint - “Checkpoint A” will remain operational with two checkpoint lanes near the American Airlines Ticketing counter. The installation of the new central escalator in the passenger security checkpoint is complete. Terrazzo flooring continues to be installed for the new passenger greeting area.
As a reminder to passengers, please arrive at least Airport 90 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time.
Ticketing/Gate Update All Airline ticketing counters remain in their current locations from East to West: United Airlines, Air Canada, Southwest, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue, Allegiant & American Airlines. Hearing Loop installation is complete. Hearing loops are a direct communication to a hearing aid from a wire loop broadcast system. This system will provide passengers who use hearing aids clear delivery of any public address announcements. New gate counters and backdrop facades are being installed.
Parking Update All parking lots remain open. The ROC Airport Smart Phone Lot is open and operating. This lot is located on Airport Way - the first right hand turn as you approach the terminal from Brooks Avenue and is complete with a large flight information display screen. To reduce roadway congestion family and friends picking up passengers are encouraged to use this lot.
