CVG to upgrade 28 passenger boarding bridges

Boarding bridges in Concourse B will soon offer passengers a fresh, new experience as they jet on and off their flights. CVG will begin a phased approach to replace all 28 bridges starting in June 2023. This project will span the next two-and-a-half to three years.

Recently, CVG learned it will be awarded $14 million for this project through the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Terminal Program. This program and funding was made possible as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

CVG had already been planning to replace these bridges this year, but this funding will accelerate the replacement of all the existing bridges, some of which are close to 30 years old.

As the airport continues its ambitious strategic plan, [New Heights], this federal funding will go a long way to improve operational efficiency and provide passengers with a fitting ‘front door’ to the Cincy region.
