Midway Security Expansion

June 25 2015

Chicago, Illinois 
Leopardo Construction completed an 18,000-square-foot, two-story addition at Midway International Airport. The $13.4 million expansion helped realign Midway’s north security checkpoint to increase the processing capabilities of the passenger security screening operation. The addition, which is directly adjacent to Cicero Avenue, facilitated an increase in the number of the security screening lanes from 14 to 20. The project features extensive curtain-wall construction, terrazzo flooring and a double cantilever structural system.
