Description of Proposed Impose and Use Project

Terminal B/C Connector. This project will construct a 40-foot-wide passenger connector hallway between the secured side of Concourses B and C in order to allow connecting passengers the ability to move freely between Concourse B and C without having to exit the secure side of one concourse and having to be rescreened at a passenger screening checkpoint of the other concourse. The project will also include the widening of Concourse C to provide fire/life safety compliance with required ingress/egress of passengers. In addition, the existing 6-lane passenger security checkpoint for Concourse C will be relocated and expanded to a total of 9 passenger screening lanes to allow for more efficient passenger screening times during peak periods. The existing airline outbound baggage conveyance system will be required to be reconfigured to accommodate the Concourse B/C Connector project along with the relocation/reconfiguration of several airport concessions, Maryland Aviation Administration offices. Other elements include the reconfiguration of several emergency exit stairwells and the construction of a temporary passenger hallway connector between Concourse B and C that will be required during construction. The Concourse C mechanical chiller is being upgraded to accommodate the additional terminal square footage.

Class or Classes of Air Carriers Which the Public Agency Has Requested Not To Be Required to Collect PFCS: Nonscheduled/on demand air carriers, filing FAA Form 1800-31.

Any person may inspect the application in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. In addition, any person may, upon request, inspect the application, notice and other documents germane to the application in person at the Maryland Aviation Administration.
