CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland's main airport is planning $20 million in upgrades, including renovations to the ticketing lobby, exterior of the terminal and baggage area.
The Plain Dealer reports (http://bit.ly/1i8uFX0 ) that work at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is expected to begin next spring and be completed in 2017.
Airport officials and project designers are slated to hold a public information session on the improvements Thursday.
Airport Director Ricky Smith tells the newspaper that the goal of the project is to give the airport a more modern feel and add more customer-friendly features.
Key updates include improving the lighting of the terminal's interior ceiling, installing energy-efficient glass and improving passenger circulation and restrooms at the central security checkpoint.
The design phase is expected to last through this fall.
