b'PHL is incorporating more smart features during its nine-phase program to update restrooms.TERMINALSBWI | PHL11Given the scope and importance of restroom renovations at PHL, projects are ongoing and often overlap. Phase 1, completed in 2012, is already in planning to be refreshed. Phase 2 was completed in 2017 and Phase 3, which included five restrooms, wrapped up last summer. The airport started construction of Phase 4 in April 2021 and expects to finish in June 2023. Phases 5 through 9 are scheduled to run from December 2022 through fall 2026.Appulingam reports that the airport has received positive feedback from passengers and airline partners about many of the upgrades. The new trough sinks, improved lighting and larger, open entrances are proving particularly popular. Finding Ways to Be BetterTo be or not to be? is often considered the ultimate question.
