"Extreme Makeover" Aims to Impress

General Mitchell International Airport is undergoing a facelift, including several renovation projects that will prepare the facility to accommodate an increasing number of passengers:

  • A complete remodel of the retail concession mall is under way. The reconstructed, relocated M&I Bank was the first to reopen. A new, permanent 716-square-foot Starbucks location has opened at the entrance to Concourse D. The CNBC newsstand, Brooks Brothers Retail and new PGA store began construction May 1 and are scheduled for completion in mid-summer.
  • The renovation and widening of Concourse C begins early June.
  • The Concourse D security checkpoint-widening project has begun, and will result in the addition of two more security lanes.

Stay tuned for the "final reveal."
