Construction crews started work Wednesday at Fort Wayne International Airport for a new terminal entrance road.
Phase one starts with the construction of a section of the new road including at Cell Phone lot and part of a new two-lane entrance to the Economy Lot. Visitors and passengers will have to access the Cell Phone and Economy lots through Ross Drive. Second Street coming into the Terminal Complex is closed.
The first part of the project is expected to last 60 days. Once that is complete, phase two will start and last about 30 days.
“The new terminal entrance road will enhance the flow of traffic for passengers entering the terminal,” said Executive Director Scott Hinderman. “The new road will allow for possible expansion of parking and the terminal in the future.”
In phase two, part of the old Second Street will be demolished and work will continue on the Economy Lot entrance. Short and Long Term parking entrances will also be improved.
In all, the project will have six phases.
