PWM will be awarded $4.8 million for improvements to the airport in an announcement yesterday. These funds will go towards the purchase of an extension pier and two new passenger bridges for Gates 12 and 14, two jetways will also be replaced with new ones due to age and a fourth baggage carousel will be added in the dead space just beyond the entrance to baggage claim. A Federal Inspection Station will be part of the next round of funding next year once the jetport administration offices are moved to the upper east end of the terminal (empty mechanical space) and TSA is relocated to the current jetport administration space. The two new jetways will increase the total at PWM to twelve along with an additional two smaller RJ bridges located at Gate 1 A/ B.
