Cleveland Hopkins International Airport will temporarily shut down one of three Transportation Security Administration checkpoints during the last phase of the facility's year-long renovation. 

Hopkins said the Concourse B checkpoint for travelers approved for expedited screening through the TSA's PreCheck program will close on April 5 for up to two months. 

During the construction, TSA PreCheck travelers will be detoured to specified lanes at checkpoints A and C, Hopkins reported. 

Eventually the entire terminal will be redesigned with modern finishes, including LED lighting, better climate control and blast-proof glass.

Airport Commissioner Frank Szabo said the project is on track for a spring completion, before the Republican National Convention.
