Expansion

There is currently a plan in place for future expansion of the airport as it continues to grow in passenger volume.[3] Components of the master plan includes adding an additional runway as well as expanding Concourse C with more gates.


A new control tower had been built south of the airport, replacing the old one located near Concourse C. Currently, the new tower is the tallest control tower in the State of Washington. Another project, recently completed, was the Terminal, Rotunda, and Concourse C Enhancement Project (TRACE).[4] The project, which wrapped up in November 2006, added retail space and expanded the security checkpoints in the airport's three concourses, as well as gave the Rotunda an aesthetic make over.
