Work on roadways, parking progresses around BWI

Construction at Baltimore-Washington International Airport is progressing with a new entrance and exit now open for the Maryland Department of Transportation headquarters. Excavation work continues on the neighboring site, where an 8,400-space parking garage is being built.

Additional lanes on the airport's new road network, including the Elm Road route for returning rental cars, are scheduled to open over the weekend.

Work is nearly complete on a 1,400-space surface parking lot scheduled to open next month across from the BWI Sheraton International Hotel at Aviation Boulevard and Elm Road.
