$30 million for new baggage screening equipment at airport

Posted on: 8:20 pm, May 10, 2012, by

MILWAUKEE — A mega project designed to ease congestion at Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport is set for takeoff. The $30 million project includes a 41,000 square foot building that will house new baggage screening equipment.

It will replace machines in the lobby of the ticketing area that often clog passenger flow at peak travel times.

When the project is finished, ticket counter employees will be able to place a passenger’s checked luggage on a conveyor, which will transport it into the building for screening and loading.

Under the current setup, passengers take their checked luggage from the ticket counter for screening by the TSA.

Construction of the new building is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
