The south concourse, scheduled to open around this time next year, will include five passenger gates with more room for travelers. It will also include new security, an observation point and a number of amenities, including a dining area for checked passengers.

When the airport initially unveiled its plans, the project carried an estimate of $84 million. Through value engineering and strategic bidding, it has reduced the cost to $67 million and has retained around $6 million in contingency costs.
