What's New with PDX Next: September Update, North Bypass Connector and Concourse C Construction
The September What's New with PDX Next update is out now! Read it to get the full scoop on the north bypass connector, learn more about the latest concessions updates, watch the recording of the recent What's New with PDX Next forum and so much more.
North Bypass Connector: When the north bypass connector opens on Tuesday, Sept. 14, some important things will remain the same – namely, access to restrooms and concessions – but there will be a few changes.
As noted in the Q&A above, to get to Concourse D, you’ll now turn right after going through the D/E checkpoint. PDX red badge holders can still use the alternate access doors.
While there will be signage and barriers in place, there’s nothing as helpful to bewildered travelers as a kind and knowledgeable PDX employee. If you see a puzzled passenger, please take a moment to stop and help. If you work pre-security, giving passengers flying out of Concourse D a heads up before they go through the checkpoint is a great way to minimize confusion. You can also advise travelers with mobility issues to contact their airlines for wheelchair service if needed.
Concourse C Construction: Starting next week, new pile driving activity in the alley will cause some noise and shaking. You'll hear and feel the greatest impacts by the former Sound Balance space on Concourse C.
