Holiday fliers urged to arrive early at BWI

July 03, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Officials at Baltimore-Washington International Airport advise travelers to allow extra time to park and reach the terminal over the July 4 holiday weekend and suggest they use light rail or other public transportation.

More than 200,000 passengers are due to pass through BWI over the weekend, with a peak in traffic today. Monday's anticipated volume is 46,000 passengers. The norm is 38,000 a day at BWI.

Long-term parking is limited this summer due to construction at the Satellite Blue lot. As spaces fill up, travelers will be sent to the Pink Overflow Lot and to BWI's Amtrak/MARC station garage and surface lot.

Shuttle buses will run from these lots to the airport terminal every 10 minutes, except between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m., when they will operate every 20 minutes.
