Louisville International Terminal Enhancement Construction Update 3/22/16

March 22, 2016

Construction continues on the $9.5 million Louisville International Airport Terminal Enhancement Project. In addition, HMS Host (food-and-beverage) and Paradies Lagardère (gift-and-news) combined are investing more than $8 million in new outlets and retail stores. On Monday, March 21, the Phase 1C in Concourse B terrazzo floor was finished. Work is on-going on Phase 2A on the departures (upper) level, and Phases 2B and 3D in Concourse A. (Please note, the La Tapenade grab-and-go kiosk in Concourse A is now closed.) To review the previously released information about these phases, please click the Pardon our Dust link at

After the Security Checkpoint (Airside Terminal) – Concourse B

Construction on Phase 2C in Concourse B will begin Monday, March 21 and continue through late April 2016. It includes installing terrazzo flooring on the north side of the concourse. Because of the enhancements, the following adjustments will take place:

• Concourse B Gates: All gates in Concourse B will be open. Passengers should follow the terminal and temporary construction signs for gate access and directions to baggage claim.

• Restrooms: The men’s, women’s and family restrooms across from Gate B15 will be temporarily closed. After the closure, the closest open men’s and women’s restrooms will be next to Gate B2 or in Concourse A (next to Gate A1). There is also a restroom on the mezzanine level in the rotunda, next to The Bourbon Loft.

• Food-and-Beverage Outlets: At this time, all food-and-beverage outlets in Concourse B will remain open. However, the grab-and-go kiosk, La Tapenade, will temporarily relocate to the Gate B7 seating area. • Gift-and-News Retailers: At this time, all gift-and-news retailers will remain open.

• Electric Passenger Carts: Due to the temporary construction walls, passengers who need assistance may continue to take the electric cart as far as the airside rotunda. There, Special Service Representatives (SSR) with wheelchairs will assist travelers to their gates.

Note: Temporary construction signs are installed throughout the terminal to direct guests during the construction project—which should be finished in fall 2016.
