The Missoula International Airport will begin a remodeling project in September.
The airport grew 60 percent over the last 15 years. Airport Director Brian Ellestad said the goal of the project is to improve the overall customer experience.
«The main thing our passengers will see is moving the current TSA checkpoint to the middle of the building, say where our bear is in the middle of the lobby,” said Ellestad.
By moving the checkpoint, there will be larger gate areas, room for more food options and faster TSA security lines.
Ellestad emphasized that the project is funded by user fees and federal government grants.
The TSA renovation will be finished in the next year, and the rest of the airport will be completed in phases over a five year span.
