Mon Mar 21, 2005 11:40 am

Does anyone know what's happening with the new midfield terminal at RSW? The website hasn't been updated lately. When is it scheduled to be completed?

Quoting Rhh621 (Thread starter):
When is it scheduled to be completed?

- I was down there again last week and a rent-a-car van driver told me "early 2006." He said there is a time period where they are going to do a "Test Run" to make sure it's ready to open. From what I saw, it's done on the exterior. I don't know if they have the access roads to the new terminal ready. This driver said the entrance to the new terminal is going to be off of Alico Rd. I'll be back down there in a few weeks and inquire a little deeper (asking someone else this time). I really am interested in knowing what they are going to do with the old terminal. It's only 20 years old. That driver told me they are going to flatten the place.

From what I've heard (don't quote me on this)... the new terminal is supposed to open sometime this spring. But as with everything in Florida... if they say spring, it probably won't be until autumn.

In regards to the existing terminal, I had heard that it was going to be converted and used for administrative offices, etc. for the airport.

I was just down there last week and I heard June. Hopefully it is soon as the old terminal is terrible. No seating, dirty restrooms, and horrid security lines.

Yeah the Ft. Myers/Naples area has really blown up in the 90's and in the past few years, they've needed this terminal for a while now.
