Work has started on a $6m upgrade to Cincinnati /Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG), in Ohio.
The project, which will renovate the terminal and piers, will be completed in six phases between now and the spring of next year. Careful planning will ensure disruption to passengers is kept to a minimum with much of the work taking place between 2300hrs and 0400hrs. The first changes travelers will see is a floor-to-ceiling makeover in baggage claim that includes more energy-efficient lighting, new carpet and improved wall treatments. The ground transportation center will also be renovated, and new flooring will be installed in the walking tunnel connecting the terminal and concourses. These upgrades are expected to be completed over the autumn and winter.
Further phases of the programme will include brighter lighting on the terminal frontage, and simplified signage for better wayfinding. Upgrades will be made to the vestibules in the car parks, the tunnel between the main building and the garages, and further enhancements to the check-in area and concourses A and B.
Candace McGraw, Chief Executive Officer at CVG said: “As CVG embraces what’s next, this Terminal Modernization project delivers on our mission to provide an unforgettably positive experience for our passengers. We’re building on the sense of place currently in our Terminal and Concourses, for passengers to feel welcomed home or welcomed to our region, by incorporating regional branding elements inspired by the Roebling Bridge and Ohio River into the design.”
