Here are the highlights, work starts on the $1.2 billion project next month. That work includes building a new connector between Terminals 2 and 4, the demolition of Terminal 3, and adding nine new international gates to Concourse B at Terminal 4. Delta says Terminal 3 operations will begin shifting to T4 in May 2013, and Terminal 3 will be demolished two years later, and its former space will be used for aircraft parking.
Delta says that new dual taxiways as part of the project (probably space created by Terminal 3 going away) will help improve operational efficiency, and that passengers will be able to transfer between terminals more quickly, all while providing better amenities.
The gate spaces look very open
new connector will make transferring between terminals a breeze
