The Project consists of an expansion and renovation of Terminal 5 at O'Hare International Airport. Ten new gates will be added at the East end of the terminal with added concessions space. An addition at the core of the terminal will add space for concessions, airline's clubs, and enlarged hold rooms. An expanded TSA security and reconfigured Customs FIS areas will improve efficiencies, along with an entirely new baggage handling system. Lastly, the West end of the terminal will be reconfigured for Delta Airlines, so the terminal will be able to accommodate both international and domestic arriving and departing flights.
Construction of the Terminal 5 expansion began in March 2019. The first phase of the project includes an approximately $1.2 billion investment towards the modernization of O'Hare. The Terminal 5 expansion will:
Add 10 new gates to provide 25 percent more gate capacity, improving efficiency and reducing delays
