Pier B walkway to close Friday for demolition

The Pier B pedestrian walkway at Baltimore-Washington International Airport will close Friday to prepare for its demolition and the construction of a sky bridge from the roof of the garage to the terminal building. The current walkway is expected to be demolished by early next month.

Enclosed, heated and air-conditioned sky bridges with moving walkways are part of the airport's $1.8 billion expansion program. They will provide access to every pier, and passengers will no longer need to cross the airport's roadway to reach the terminal.

Construction updates and travel advice are updated online at the BWI Web site, www.bwi airport.com.

Information: 800-I-FLY-BWI.

Roadwork is closing one lane of Elm Road

Continuing roadwork near the airport is closing one lane of inbound Elm Road at the intersection with Aviation Boulevard (Route 170).

The closure will take place between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. Periodic closures are possible during the day. No closures will take place during peak traffic hours, and only one lane on inbound Elm Road will be closed at a time.

The closures are necessary to relocate a water meter from the middle of the road to the shoulder. The closures will continue for about two more weeks.
