A pilot program
has begun to replace current directional signage inside the
Airport with electronic signs that can be updated in real-time.

The new signs are in place on Concourse B,
Concourse D and in the Terminal North ticketing area. Currently,
the screens project a general location directory. Future plans
under consideration include adding news content, flight status
or Airport information.
