Construction to shut inner roadway of BWI's lower level

Beginning today, the inner lower-level commercial roadway at Baltimore-Washington International Airport will be closed to buses and other commercial vehicles, except taxis and shuttle vans.

Buses transporting passengers between BWI parking facilities and the terminal will pick up passengers at the outer curb on the lower- level roadway.

The commercial vehicle roadway will be closed from 7 a.m. today through 7 a.m. Wednesday for construction.

During the closure, signs and flagmen will divert traffic around the construction area. If the project is postponed because of the weather, work will continue the next morning.

Primary runway closure scheduled

An overnight closure is scheduled for one of the primary runways at BWI to perform maintenance and pavement repairs as part of the airport's expansion program.

Runway 10/28, one of two runways primarily used for commercial jet traffic, will close from 11 p.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. March 4, weather permitting. This temporary closure will not affect flight schedules. Some communities around the airport may notice changes in air traffic patterns.

The airport coordinates its efforts with the Federal Aviation Administration to limit runway closures that affect communities near BWI. For updates, call the Division of Aviation Noise and Abatement, 410-859-7021.
