Wichita Mid-Continent Airport will be expanding its security with the installation of four new X-ray machines beginning Friday.

Three of the machines are expected to be installed and operational by Aug. 14, and the last machine will be operational by Aug. 22, said Keith Osborn, Wichita’s federal security director for the Transportation Security Administration.

Passengers should plan for delays during construction, and expect some walkway constriction when exiting the terminals, Osborn said.
