Construction to shut roadway to shuttle buses

Construction that is part of the curbside extension of Pier A will close the lower-level inner commercial roadway at BWI to large shuttle buses until Thursday.

Taxis, limousines and vans will be able to pass through the construction area.

Shuttle buses will drop off and pick up travelers at the outer curb of the roadway when transporting passengers between parking lots and the airport terminal. All shuttle buses are running on normal schedules.

Pier A's curbside extension and preparations for a new skybridge are part of the airport's $1.8 billion expansion program. Skybridges will provide access to every pier, and passengers will no longer need to cross the airport's roadway to reach the terminal when BWI's expansion is complete in 2006.

Construction updates and travel advice are available at the BWI Airport web site, For airport information: 800-I-FLY-BWI.
