Construction to begin on upper-level road at airport today

Construction is to begin today at Baltimore-Washington International Airport on a project to strengthen and expand the upper-level road used for departing passengers, a project that is expected to take two months.

The work will be done between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. so that the road can remain open during busiest travel hours. When the road is closed, the lower road, usually used only for arriving passengers, also will be used for departing passengers.

During construction, the airport will offer free parking for 30 minutes in the hourly garage to reduce congestion.
