What's New with PDX Next: Concourse C, Ticket Lobby and Bag Road
Need a little pep in your step? We've got good news: Starbucks on Concourse C re-opens today!
On your way to pick up your iced latte, you might notice the Concourse C moving walkway is closed for removal. There may be a few more steps now, but when the new main terminal is complete, it’ll be a short stroll through a bright, open space.
If you look up in the ticket lobby, you've no doubt noticed the tell-tale signs of construction. As we continue to work on the ceiling in preparation for the new roof and HVAC system, our construction teams had to think creatively about the best – and safest – way to complete the overhead work.
With that in mind, starting the week of June 14, you'll see a new feature rise up in the ticket lobby: scaffolding. This allows ceiling work to continue efficiently and safely by eliminating the need for scissor lifts. It also allows multiple trades to work overhead at the same time.
We previously shared that pedestrian foot traffic should avoid bag road due to the construction. In the next week or so, you'll see signage helping you navigate alternative routes.
Also, if you’re driving a bag tug, there are new protocols in place to help you out. If you need to get through and construction vehicles are in the area, turn on your lights and honk twice to alert the crews that you need to pass through.
