    A new nine-lane security checkpoint is set to open later this spring at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

    Lower level security will close this week, allowing BWI Marshall to continue construction of the new facility.

    BWI Marshall is in the midst of a major terminal enhancement program that will improve the airport terminal and provide new services for travellers.

    The construction includes a new, expanded passenger security checkpoint that will serve Concourses A, B, and C.

    The new nine-lane security checkpoint will be comparable to the large, efficient security checkpoints that serve Concourses A and B.

    The question is how many would be open at a given time?

    Very good point. Will they have the staffing to fully support all 9 lanes?

    We all know that only two-three lanes will be open and the rest will be used to tease travelers in a hurry.

    "..large, efficient security checkpoints..."???
    the term "efficient" might be stretching the truth just a bit.....
