The Sacramento County Department of Airports, which operates Sacramento International Airport, has announced SMForward, a USD 1.3 Billion expansion project that will reshape the Airport to accommodate projected passenger growth over the next seven years.SMForward is embarking on a transformative journey, with the launch of six ambitious projects in 2024, including construction of a stunning $140 million pedestrian walkway. This state-of-the-art walkway will seamlessly connect Terminal B to Concourse B, empowering passengers with the flexibility to choose between a leisurely walk to their gate or utilizing the Airport's efficient train system.Additional SMForward projects include expantions to both Terminal A and Concourse B, which will add gates and new amenities; a new Terminal B parking garage; and a consolidated ground transportation center that will centralize taxi, rideshare, and off-site shuttle providers into a single area that is walkable from both terminals. SMForward is expected to conclude in late 2027 with the completion of a new $400 million consolidated rental car facility, allowing passengers access to the Airport’s rental car providers without the need to ride a shuttle bus.SMForward is a major milestone for Sacramento, representing the largest construction program in the Airport’s history. This ambitious project is not just an expansion, but a complete transformation of the airport experience for the people of Sacramento and its visitors. The project will bring about significant improvements and upgrades that will enhance the convenience, comfort, and accessibility of the airport for all.
