So you're saying all the old concourses are closed now? I know they originally planned to leave them open while the rest of A was built but are they closing them early now with lower flight demand? They built the bridge between the old and the new, but maybe that has already filled it's useful life

They still list C, F and G gates on arrivals for today and tomorrow, so I don't think they're totally done yet.

They did announce due to the pandemic and lower flight demand they are closing the old gates and accelerating the construction schedule and will save 300 million dollars by doing so. The bridge was pretty well built by the time the pandemic hit, I'm sure they initially intended to use it for much longer. Maybe they'll keep the old concourses open until the time comes to tear them down. Will take a few months to tear down the parking garage.

Nope. On the SLC Airport webpage it says:

"As of midnight, aircraft were no longer loading and unloading passengers in the former airport concourses C, F and G. All airlines serving SLC are now operating out of entirely new facilities."

As I mentioned, they still have other gates listed for flights... not sure how they're servicing them or if they'll change soon to an A or B gate.

I completely understand why they made the decision to accelerate the closure of the remaining original concourses due to decreased demand as a result of Covid-19, but that temporary bridge connecting the new terminal to the old concourses has to be one of the biggest wastes of the entire project in hindsight. It was very large and very solidly built, originally intended to serve for several years, but in the end only ended up being used for one month and now it will be demolished along with the rest of the old facilities. :shrug:

I kinda wish I could've gone inside one last time.

As a kid (pre 9/11) the airport was probably my favorite place in the valley. Didn't get to fly until I was a teenager, but I was *always* excited to go there to see the planes, navigate the terminal (especially the looooooong B gates), and just enjoy the crowds.

9/11 killed that off substantially.

And now the old airport is closed forever. Guess you can never go back.

That's the key word......"hindsight." Nobody anticipated a pandemic. In the end it's a pretty good trade off to save hundreds of millions of dollars.

Yes- it's no criticism of the decision they made, I just remember thinking while seeing that connecting bridge being constructed that it seemed to be very substantially built for a temporary structure. Even more so after it was only used for a month.

Meanwhile, UTA will be operating TRAX via a shuttle bus to a wooden station with no ticketing machines until next summer...

Ooh, ooh! I have some pictures of that temporary station!
https://i.imgur.com/WVcoOG1h.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/5os8snch.jpg

As you can see, it's two wooden platforms built next to the very last grade crossing before the old TRAX station. One of the platforms is built for the Aux track (holding extra or broken down cars), and the other is built over the old westbound mainline track in order to access trains on the former eastbound track. That is a very clever way of getting two tracks at the station while using only the existing switches. Whoever designed the airport line tracks, they certainly knew what was coming and designed for it very well.

The catenary guys did excellent planning also:
https://i.imgur.com/L1dZNash.jpg

The wires go right up to the current end-of-tracks.

A last view of the old station, the ripped-up tracks, and the demolition of the parking garage in the background:
https://i.imgur.com/tVTBGJQh.jpg


With all that planning, you'd think they would have considered running a power cable out for a fare machine? You can see that there are TAP readers on the temp platform, where are they getting their power? I know UTA contracts out the work for supplying, maintaining, and servicing the fare machines (Spending money to collect roughly the same amount of money, causing less people to ride transit overall - Gah! Don't get me started!), so perhaps there was an agreement issue outside of UTA's control that would prevent a ticket machine at a temp location?
Maybe put a fare machine at the shuttle bus stop, so you buy your ticket before boarding the bus?
IDK, with the way things are going maybe they're counting on finishing the TRAX station ahead of schedule, and they just don't care about the temp station all that much.

Yeah, that's weird.

Also, why is going to take until next summer to finish? Does anyone know? It seems like a long time for such a short amount of track, especially considering they've already done a significant amount of work at the permanent station up next to the new terminal. I guess I was just hoping to be able to use the new station next June when I fly out (I don't use the airport much, obviously).

Hatman Nov 2, 2020 6:35 PM

Building and qualifying new tracks for passenger service isn't usually a fast process even for very short segments. However, the main impediment to opening the new TRAX station is the old Parking Garage demolition, which must be complete before TRAX can start construction through the same general area.

The image posted by arkhitektor above should be helpful. The location of the temp station is about where the 'BIG D' letters are, and the new TRAX station is visible as a dark line in the dirt below the road bridge. Between the two locations is the old parking garage.

The second phase of the new Salt Lake City airport has opened; here’s a first look
https://thepointsguy.com/news/new-slc-airport-b-gates/
Zach Griff
Nov 19, 2020

There’s exciting news for flyers headed to or from Salt Lake City.

On Sept. 15, city officials, as well as Delta, inaugurated a portion of the new airport with the opening of the first phase of Concourse A. But only select passengers have been able to experience the new facility since mid-September. That’s because the new terminal and its 25 gates primarily serve Delta flights.

As part of the brand-new concourse, flyers have been treated to dramatic art installations, like The Canyon in the main departures hall, sun-soaked gate areas, a plethora of bathrooms, top-notch retailers and much more.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

There’s even a brand-new 28,000-square-foot Delta Sky Club welcoming the carrier’s premium flyers. It boasts passenger-friendly amenities like an outdoor deck, two buffets and private workstations.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

But what if you’re flying another airline?

On Oct. 27, local airport authorities opened the second phase of the new airport — Concourse B. And with the opening, all flyers passing through SLC will now pass through a new gate.

I’ve already detailed what phase one of the new SLC looks like, so now let’s take a peek at how the new B gates compare.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

To start, every passenger departing from a B gate will need to clear security in the main headhouse. Then, after passing through The Canyon, you’ll need to walk to the underground tunnel connecting the A and B gates.

The walk from the security checkpoint to the tunnel entrance takes about five to seven minutes, and you’ll then need to walk the nearly 1,000-foot tunnel before getting to the B terminal.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp
https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

Though the trek is long, keep your eyes peeled to the walls — there’s a colorful art installation depicting Utah’s four seasons.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp
https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp
https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

Fortunately, SLC is building a more convenient underground passageway, but that won’t be ready until late 2024. Once open, you’ll be able to head to the B gates right after clearing security, saving you at least ten minutes.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

Once you ascend the escalators at the end of the tunnel, take a deep breath. (At this point, I was sweating under my mask.)

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

And once you open your eyes, you’ll see that the B concourse is essentially a carbon copy of its older cousin. There are 21 gates, allocated as follows:

Alaska Airlines — one
American Airlines — two
Delta — seven
Frontier — one
JetBlue — one
Southwest — four
United — two
Three common-use gates allocated based on demand
As you walk east, you’ll appreciate the wide hallways.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

Continue walking and you’ll approach the end of the concourse near Gates B21 and B24. These gates are primarily reserved for regional jet operator SkyWest since they afford easy access to the ramp for a hard-stand operation.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

As you meander through the concourse, you’ll notice that there are bathrooms at nearly every turn. Indeed, the new SLC is proud to offer restroom facilities every 150 feet.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

The bathrooms themselves are large, with plenty of stalls and sinks. Each features a different art installation as well.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp
https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp
https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp
https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

All 21 gates have a ton of seating, as well as power outlets and — my personal favorite — USB-C ports. As more and more phones support faster USB-C charging (like the new iPhone 12 Pro), this is a feature I hope other airports add soon.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp
https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp
https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

If you’re hungry, there are three new restaurants in the B concourse, including Gourmandise Euro Diner and Bakery, Uinta Brewing Company and Wasatch Brew Pub. Indoor dining is currently permitted in the airport, and flyers seemed to be enjoying their meals.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

There’s also a selection of retailers offering conveniences like drinks and snacks, magazines and newspapers, tech gear and more. As passenger throughput increases, several additional restaurants and shops are slated to open.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

Concourse B is large enough to handle current levels of demand. But, hopefully, demand will pick up we recover from the pandemic. If it does, SLC is prepared; the airport has the ability to add eight additional B gates in a second construction phase and 15 more in a third phase.

https://thepointsguy.global.ssl.fast...pr=2&auto=webp

In the meantime, now that the first phase of B gates is open, construction returns to the A gates. Specifically, the airport is working to complete the demolition of the old C, D and F concourses, as well as the international terminal — all while building 22 more gates in Concourse A East.

The current tunnel is temporary until they finish the permanent tunnel which is in a central location. Should save 10+ minutes.

Still bummed they didn't plan a train to connect concourses

There is a train planned. It just won't happen until another concourse is added.

I think it is estimated to be needed between 2030 and 2040. There are variables that could speed it up such as another Olympics being awarded in 2030 or 2034.

The new layout allows for the addition of new concourses as they are needed without it impacting airport operations.

Do you know when this will happen? My elderly mother hurt her arm (from carrying bags) and almost missed her plane because of how long a walk it was between her connecting flights. Evidently, carts for people with mobility issues aren't ferrying anyone right now because of Covid either?

How much time with the central tunnel save over the current temp tunnel? I always forget, but is a train not in the works?

Last I heard a tram is in the plans but likely not until a 3rd concourse is built. So even when the central tunnel opens in 2024 it will just be moving walkways. I flew out of SLC after the new terminal opened when they were still using the old gates. I was flying out of the G gates (old A gates) and it took forever to walk there. The walk to the furthest of the new B gates is even further than that. I'm confused how the central tunnel will save any time because it's the same distance as using the current tunnel, unless you have to backtrack to the handful of gates that are further east.

Edit: The walk really wasn't that bad. It's not an unusually long walk for an airport, but I understand why people mention it.

Maybe this was already posted on here, and I just missed it. Either way, I was really excited to see that they are able to save the world map from the old airport and mix it into the new. That was always one of my favorite parts of going to the airport as a kid, and it will be fun to have it in the new airport. Thanks to everyone on here for all of the updates, I don't post often, but lurk nearly every day.

This makes me so happy! I was really bummed when they previously said they couldn't save it.

i-215 Jan 24, 2021 3:41 AM

Saw the article of people complaining about the long walk to the B-gates and lack of wheelchairs during holiday travel.

Sounds like the New SLC had a bumpy landing for its first "big" run.

Are the B gates really that far, though? I've had to make the run from the old A-gates to the far end of the D concourse. It was no picnic, but nothing compared to trying to find my way around ATL.

Also, what's stopping SLC from putting in the underground people mover NOW?

RC14 Jan 24, 2021 9:23 AM

I flew to Miami earlier this month out of the new airport. I was trying to understand why people find the new layout confusing and I still don't get it. The only thing that seemed a bit confusing to me was trying to figure out where to go for Uber and Lyft. the signage for that could have been more clear but it was a minor complaint. Aside from that, the new airport design is far simpler than any large airport I have ever been in.

bob rulz Jan 24, 2021 6:16 PM

There will always be people who complain about things changing no matter good the new design is. No point in paying much attention to them.

You can also put an s, m, l, or h at the end of the url, before the .jpg[/img] end brackets, which should change the size. I think these stand for small, medium, large, and huge, but the huge usually turns out to be the correct size, go figure.

Progress on the central tunnel:


Atlas Feb 5, 2021 4:05 PM

Maybe they should use those millions they saved on airport construction from the pandemic to build a tram/train in the tunnel. There is certainly a demand among the hoi polloi already.

That IS already the plan, but I think it'll only open once the 3rd north concourse is built... The central tunnel I think will be walking/moving walkway while they just have the current north concourse open, but they'll probably working on the tram so that it's ready once the 3rd is done.

Makid Feb 5, 2021 5:09 PM

There was an article a week or so ago that mentioned the tram and the 3rd concourse. In it they stated that the 3rd concourse is expected to start construction within a few years after the existing airport work is completed.

The goal, I think, is to have the third concourse completed between 2026 and 2028.

While I think the plan for the 3rd concourse was based on pre-covid travel numbers, I can see air travel and growth rebounding in the next year or 2. If growth returns to what it was the few years leading up to 2020, I can see a push for the 3rd concourse to happen by 2024 to 2025.

I am fairly certain that the designs are complete for the 3rd concourse and about 50% complete for the 4th concourse, which isn't slated to be needed until 2034 or 2035.

I think that's a tad optimistic. We'll be lucky to see the A and B concourses built out by 2024, IMO.

I could see a C concourse by 2034.

Though a lot of articles recently seem to be suggesting SLC will wind up targeting 2034 Winter Olympics instead. So who knows.

I hope Salt Lake gets it! I do worry about date drift. I remember on this message board (circa 2003) talking about a serious bid for 2022. Then 2030. Now 2034...

It always feels like the bid is 15-20 years out of reach, and slides along with time.
