Flights increasing to Boston, Seattle, Milwaukee, South

Delta Airlines will add an additional flight from Baltimore-Washington International Airport to Atlanta, beginning June 1, and AirTran Airways will add two more Boston flights and one more Orlando, Fla., flight, starting June 5.

US Airways will reinstate its seasonal service to Seattle on June 17, and Skyway Airlines, the Midwest Express Connection, will add a third daily roundtrip flight to Milwaukee, beginning June 16.

Skywalk, terminal projects added to construction

Several construction projects are under way as part of the $1.8 billion expansion program at BWI. New construction includes the terminal curbside expansion and skywalks project.

Starting today, areas inside the garage on Levels 2 through 6 will be designated as construction zones for the installation of an enclosed, moving sidewalk on Level 6. Cars parked in these areas before today will not be removed, but as customers leave parking spaces, orange cones and no-parking signs will be placed on them.

The outermost lane of the lower-level road from Pier B to Pier E will be closed between midnight and 6 a.m. today and tomorrow to install barriers and provide construction access along the curb. The lane will be reopened for daytime use.

Construction also is planned for the garden area by the garage from Pier B to Pier E. Sidewalks and crosswalks from the garage to the terminal building on the lower level will be relocated. A minimum of two crosswalks will be open at all times.

The construction will take 4 1/2 years to complete. When finished, the upper- and lower-level terminal roads will have two additional lanes for traffic; new climate-controlled skywalks over the roads will provide a safe path between the garage and the terminal, with new elevators, escalators and stairways in the terminal; and the terminal will be expanded 10 feet at the curb.

Efforts will be made to minimize the project's effect on traffic and road access near the airport.
