â€œThereâ€™s a high demand for more security checkpoints at BWI. The airport has seen a substantial amount of growth over the last few years,â€ said Jonathan Dean, BWI Marshall spokesman. â€œ2012 was a record year for passenger traffic. It was a third straight annual record for the airport, so weâ€™ve seen really solid growth the last few years.â€
A $100 million project is in the works for a new checkpoint scheduled to open this summer.
â€œWeâ€™re also working to expand and improve and expand Concourse C, which is the oldest part of the airport,â€ Dean said.
Once finished, the new security area will be the biggest one the airport has ever openedâ€" with nine lanes.
