BOSTON LOGAN OUTLINES PLAN AND SCHEDULE FOR USD 2BN UPGRADE
Boston Logan operator, Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport), has launched a communication plan to inform passengers, employees and tenants about an upcoming series of construction projects at the New England gateway.
According to Massport, the projects will have "major impacts to the travelling public" over the next five years, and include roadway detours starting this autumn.
“Logan Forward is our commitment to improve the passenger experience and we pledge to keep the public informed every step of the way throughout the construction process so they can appropriately plan ahead,” said incoming Massport CEO Lisa Wieland.
The nearly USD 2 billion capital plan, which Massport believes will improve the efficiency and the customer experience throughout Logan Airport, includes:
• Terminal B to C roadway improvements;
• A new Terminal B-C post-security connection;
• New gates and a 2,000-space parking garage at Terminal E;
• Increased sustainability efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions;
• Better access to and more high occupancy vehicle (HOV) transportation options.
A new website http://www.loganforward.com/ has been set up to provide more information about each of these projects, as well as construction timelines and updates.
Logan Forward also includes a robust Ground Transportation plan aimed at reducing the airport’s environmental footprint by strategically providing more options for passengers to use HOV, like Logan Express (LEX).
“We have a responsibility to build a modern, world-class facility because it is what our airline partners want and passengers expect,” said aviation director, Ed Freni.
“We’re using this as an opportunity to prepare the entire airport for the future and it is critical that we keep the travelling public, airlines and tenants informed every step of the way.
Built in 1967, Terminal C is Logan’s busiest terminal, home to JetBlue Airways and served over 12 million passengers in 2018.
The Terminal E Modernization project will add nearly 400,000 square feet of space with 7 new gates, 3 of which were approved in 1995 but never constructed, to the international terminal.
