BWI Neighbors discuss security, noise concerns

The BWI Neighbors Committee will discuss new security measures at Baltimore-Washington International Airport at its quarterly meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Also to be addressed are the noise assistance program, a quarterly report of airport noise trends, and a Noise Task Force report. An Integrated Noise Model presentation will explain how "noise areas" and zones are determined.

The BWI Neighbors Committee, which will meet in the main assembly room of the Maryland Aviation Administration office complex at 991 Corporate Blvd., Linthicum, is made up of community leaders and is a liaison between BWI and area residents.

Committee meetings are open to the public. Parking is free, and those who attend may park in front of the building.

New traffic patterns on I-195 leaving airport

Traffic on westbound Interstate 195 leaving BWI Airport has been shifted into eastbound lanes. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained during the shift, and a concrete median barrier will separate eastbound and westbound lanes of traffic.

Travelers should use I-195 when trying to reach the airport terminal or parking garage. BWI customers are reminded that there is only immediate pick-up and drop-off on the roadway in front of the terminal. They are encouraged to take advantage of the half-hour of free parking offered in the garage when assisting travelers.

If returning rental cars, travelers should exit onto Route 170 (Linthicum), turn onto Elm Road and follow the signs to the rental car return area.

Information on which long-term parking lots are open: Tune to 1040 AM while driving within five miles of BWI.
