Airport Experience renovations in the lower level  of Terminal 1 took another big step this week after a major section of the construction area was re-opened. The area surrounds the eastern set of escalators between the ticketing and lower levels near the Great American Bagel. The area is more open with higher ceilings and brighter ceilings and white walls. Work continues in the newly reopened area on circular lighting around the columns which will be a feature throughout the lower level once the Airport Experience project is completed.
