Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

SFO (and OAK) have a $6 surcharge on all BART trips. That makes it ~$11 to get to downtown SF, and ~$15 to get to Oakland, from SFO; from OAK it's not much less. And BART wonders why they're lagging on ridership on the airport extensions.

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

The roadways in and out of DFW have tollbooths, so anyone picking up/dropping off pays a toll.

November meeting slides. Lots of additional information on the Terminal E expansion, the Terminal B to C connector and the old AA side of Terminal B reconfiguration.

Not sure what this project is but it is located across the street from the JP Senior Center on Maverick Street.

I wonder if that's part of the future Intermodal Transportation center.

Not sure what it is, but I'm pretty sure it isn't that. Massport is still in the initial evaluation of the APM and they weren't even sure the ITC would happen at all.

EDIT: Mass88, thanks for scrolling down for those slides .

I hate to do this again, but WTF is wrong with MassDOT when it comes to gate numbering. Pier A is going to be renovated and turned over to new airlines. They will be replacing the gate signage, according to the render on slide 136. If so, pray tell, why are they adding gates 31A and 35A? Why not just renumber them all and insert the two new numbers?

I notice that there are now two competing versions of the numbering in the B/C connector, the newer one makes a little more sense than the older. C21 is taken on one of the piers, and C22 is presumably kept in store for if another gate gets tacked on over there, so the lowest number counting up toward C26 (which isn't in the project) is C23, and they backfilled from B with B39 and B40. Not perfect, but better.

That said, all of the renders fit nicely with Massport's pedestrian-but-attractive aesthetic.
