Upper-level roadway, commercial lane shut starting today

The upper-level terminal road and the lower-level commercial vehicle lane at Baltimore-Washington International Airport will be closed from midnight to 4 a.m. today through Friday.

The outer portion of the lower-level road will remain open. The upper-level closure will begin where the upper-level ramp splits from Interstate 195. Construction crews will build an elevated pedestrian bridge from the top of the parking garage into the terminal, part of BWI's planned $1.8 billion expansion.

All roads are scheduled to reopen at 4 a.m. Friday.

Small food court opens in international pier

A small food court has opened in the international pier at BWI.

The area includes a Starbucks coffee stand, a Sam Adams Pub, a Lucky Dogs hot dog cart, and a "quick and carry" cart that sells imported beer and other beverages, fresh sandwiches and snacks.

A full-service Starbucks will open tomorrow near Gate B6 in Concourse B of the domestic terminal. Starbucks offers coffee drinks, pastries and other treats.

Runway to be closed at night for repairs

One of the primary runways at BWI will be closed during the night for about the next month for maintenance.

Runway 15R/33L will be closed weekdays from midnight to 6 a.m. through Feb. 23. No work will be performed on the nights of Dec. 24, 25, 31 and Jan. 1.
