Design/ Permitting/ Construction

Ground Transportation Center

The Ground Transportation Center will consist of three components which include consolidated rental car facility, public parking and space allocated to a future transit center. The consolidated rental car facility will provide the ability to access rental car agencies with direct access to the terminal facilities. The first floor consist of public parking to replace the parking lost by the construction. The facility will also allocate space for a future transit center for bus, taxi, limo operations along with future rail connection. Design is currently underway, the project is estimated to start construction in 2018 and completion of construction is expected in 2020.

Terminal Enhancements

Coming Soon! Two Roads Tap Room!

Connecticut’s own Two Roads Brewery is opening its doors here at Bradley Airport in the spring of 2017.

New! Elevator and Information Desk Construction!

The Connecticut Airport Authority has begun construction of a new passenger elevator and a new public information booth in Bradley Airport’s Terminal A.

The dual-cab elevator will be prominently located directly across from the main security checkpoint and the bottom of the main escalators, serving both arriving and departing passengers. The new information booth will be located adjacent to the new elevators, directly across from the main escalators and staircase on the lower, arrivals level in Terminal A. The project will be constructed in two phases and temporary construction walls have been installed surrounding the work areas for each phase permitting construction to occur while minimizing impacts to the traveling public.

The first phase, commenced in January 2017 and involves work on the lower (arrivals) level only, allowing for the relocation of existing mechanical systems and is complete.

The second phase is underway and will occur on both the lower (arrivals) level and upper (departure) level. Temporary walls have been installed on the upper and lower level areas to allow for work to begin to receive the new elevators. The estimated completion date for the project is scheduled for the fall of 2017.

While much of work will be performed within the closed construction areas with heavy construction (i.e. demolition) occurring during off-hour periods or overnight hours, there may be brief periods of activity which may have an impact to passenger flow. Temporary wayfinding signs are currently in place to guide the public around the work areas.
