What’s up at Portland International Airport?

Our first post-pandemic road trip takes us to Oregon, starting at – where else – Portland International Airport (PDX).

The airport is getting a new main terminal and we stopped in to get an “in-progress” view and to learn about what it will take to make the project happen.

Here are some snaps of what the terminal looks like now.

Sadly, one of our favorite features of PDX, the pre-security shopping street with branches of many local favorites, is gone and not coming back. But many of these shops still have post-security outlets, and additional local shops are opening now, with more on the way.

Outside, things look pretty torn up too. But we were assured that the construction is not getting in the way of flight schedules. No small feat!

Here’s are some renderings of what the new terminal will look like. And below, a recent PDX tweet with a video of what we’ll see inside the new terminal. It looks like it will be pretty snazzy, pretty Portland, and very northwest.
