New Checkpoint will Feature Six Lanes,
Increased Passenger Queuing Space
Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo today unveiled the completed, newly redesigned six-lane passenger security checkpoint at the Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) as part of the ongoing ROC Renovation project.
“Today we celebrate reaching a major milestone in our Airport Renovation project by unveiling the new spacious, six-lane passenger security checkpoint at ROC.” said Dinolfo. “Convenient passenger screening is an essential for today’s travelers and will help us improve the overall experience at our airport, enhancing our efforts to attract more jobs and investment to Monroe County.”
The new ROC Airport passenger security checkpoint was designed with input from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to increase security and checkpoint efficiency, increase passenger queuing space to support increasing passenger traffic and readily adapt to peak volume travel periods.
Passenger traffic at ROC is up 8% for the period of January – July 2018 as compared to passenger traffic year-to-date (YTD) 2017. ROC experiences three peak travel periods at the passenger security checkpoint throughout the day, which can mean up to 5,000 passengers being screened per day.
“I would like to congratulate County Executive Dinolfo and her Airport team for overseeing the extensive renovation of the checkpoint, which is a critical part of the airport modernization,” said Bart Johnson, Federal Security Director, TSA. “This new checkpoint will result in a much more pleasant screening experience for both the passengers and the TSA Security Officers assigned to this checkpoint.”
The new checkpoint includes a welcoming ROC monument sign, highly visible passenger wayfinding signage for TSA PreCheck lanes and general boarding via overhead LED messaging, and an architecturally enhanced ceiling with blue ribbon mounts to guide passengers from ticketing to the secure side of the airport.
