The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) today announced the opening of a state-of-the-art pedestrian bridge with moving sidewalks connecting Terminal C with Central Parking at Logan International Airport. The $15 million walkway marks the last of four elevated walkways to connect Logan's terminals with Central Parking.
"Completion of the elevated walkways is a milestone in Logan Airport's more than $4 billion modernization program," said Craig P. Coy, CEO of Massport. "Like those connecting Terminals A, B and E, the new walkway connecting Terminal C will provide travelers with convenient and quick access from parking to check-in."
Travelers may now connect to the Terminal C walkways through the rooftop level of the Central Garage. Over the next few months, the antiquated walkway which had previously connected Terminal C to the garage will be removed, eliminating the overhead restrictions which have existed on the lower inbound and outbound roadway for years. The lower level drop-off/pick-up islands at Terminal C will also be reconstructed. Terminal C is home to Air France, Air Jamaica, Cape Air, Continental, Delta Airlines, Delta Express, Midwest Express, Swiss Air and United Airlines.
At 12 feet high, 26 feet wide and 350 feet long, the newest walkway features unique artwork in a spacious and climate controlled setting. Moving sidewalks extend the flow and feel of the terminal into the garage.
The aquatic-themed artwork of local artist Jane Goldman which adorns Logan's walkways to Terminals A, B and E, is also featured in the Terminal C walkway in spectacular terrazzo floors. Large sea creatures sprawl the walkways, recreating underwater marine life typical of the region. This artwork is part of Massport's public art program and is the largest public art commission in New England.
The $54 million construction project to build new walkways in Terminal B and C began in 1999. The Terminal B walkways opened in April of this year. The walkways connecting Terminals A and E to Central Parking opened in 1998.
