PROJECT SUMMARY

A top down look at what is being planned

The SIT Terminal Improvements Project provides improvements to correct existing critical airport terminal deficiencies in Sitka. The project includes building additions as well as remodel of most parts of the existing terminal building. Construction of improvements will be phased due to funding and the need for the terminal to continue operations throughout the project.

The project consists of two main phases, the Expansion Phase, and the Remodel and Curb-Side Improvements Phase. The Expansion Phase includes construction of a 2-story addition on the SE side of the terminal to house new passenger screening and passenger gate lounges with an up escalator, an elevator, restrooms, and a concessions area.This phase also includes the demolition of the existing Bag-Makeup and Passenger Ramp to be replaced with a two-story addition housing an enlarged bag makeup room with a passenger boarding bridge above and a ramp connecting deplaning passengers to the bag claim area. This phase is scheduled to begin construction in Fall 2023 and be complete by Fall 2024.

The Remodel and Curb-Side Improvements Phase involves interior remodel of the existing terminal to improve passenger flow, TSA baggage screening and expand the baggage claim belt and area. This phase also includes small additions on the curb side of the terminal with new entrances/ exits for arrivals and departures and a new curbside canopy along the length of the building. New interior finishes and building systems will tie the remodeled building into the additions. This phase is scheduled to commence in Fall 2024 and be complete in Summer 2025.

"This is Sitka. The place where wilderness and culture collide."

"Sitka is an island community boldly living between the mountains and sea, where the arts flourish and an ancient native culture still thrives. surrounded by rainforest, we share our home with the brown bears, bald eagles and all five species of pacific salmon. In Sitka, we are deeply connected to the natural world around us. It informs our culture and inspires our art. "
