Airport terminal reconstruction starts next week
A major reconstruction project at the Juneau International Airport begins next week. Work will involve the demolition and reconstruction of the oldest portions of the terminal that house the regional air carriers and airport administrative offices, a new main staircase, up-direction escalator, and two new elevators. In total, about 35,000 sq. ft. of the airport will be reconstructed. The expected completion date is the end of 2021.
Contractor Dawson Construction will begin working on site next week. The $25 million project is funded from federal and local sources, and will update infrastructure at the airport, provide energy efficiencies, and modernize the terminal. It will also feature four new art pieces by artists Rachael Juzeler, Alison Marks, Robert Mills, and Crystal Worl.
During construction, the public can expect slight modifications to the airport’s layout. The regional air carriers have moved to the end of the old terminal (Terminal Annex) and will have a separate entrance from the main terminal. Please pay attention and abide by wayfinding signage posted throughout the airport. For more details, here is the floor plan for the first floor and the floor plan for the second floor.
The Juneau International Airport and the City and Borough of Juneau thank the public for its patience during the reconstruction.
