Deputy Airport Director Gary Broughton said they are replacing the passenger boarding bridge at Gate 1. The current jet bridge at that gate is not in use.

The new addition cost $900,000 and is expected to be up and running by mid May.

United Airlines flights to Chicago O’hare and Washington Dulles begin April 9.

Until the new jet bridge is in place, United Airlines will use another gate.
