When Sept. 15 rolls around, all passengers will come through the central terminal to board flights.?

Delta gates will make up concourse A. Until concourse B opens in October, all other flights will use a bridge connecting the new terminal to the preexisting gates.?

"I'm pleased to say again that we are on time and budget for this phase we've redesigned," Wyatt said.?
