Lane closures slated for roads leading to airport terminal

Travelers arriving at Baltimore-Washington International Airport at night in the next few weeks should be aware of lane closures that are scheduled on roads leading to the terminal.

One lane will be closed on Elm Road while paving is taking place where the center islands had been. One of two lanes on the approach to the lower-level terminal roadway will also be closed. The lane closures will occur between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. every day for two to four weeks.

Because Elm Road is the main road used by people returning rental cars, travelers should use Interstate 195 to reach the BWI terminal. People arriving at the airport to pick up passengers at the lower-level baggage claim area are advised to take advantage of the first half-hour of free parking in the BWI garage.

Midday lane closures to affect Route 170

Midday lane closures are planned along Route 170 (Aviation Boulevard) near BWI as roadway construction continues around the airport.

Between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day for about four weeks, one lane will be closed near the Interstate 195 ramp on Route 170 northbound or southbound, depending on where the construction site is. Lane closures are scheduled to avoid morning and evening rush hours and will be clearly defined by construction barrels and reflectors.

Roadway construction is part of BWI's five-year expansion plan. The improvements are meant to increase roadway capacity and provide greater access to the airport terminal.
