Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) in the US is set to start Phase 3 of terminal road construction project next week.
As part of this, the airport authorities will shift traffic onto the new entrance road, and the existing entrance will be blocked for the traffic.
Fort Wayne International Airport executive director Scott Hinderman said: “The construction of the new terminal entrance road is meant to streamline the flow of traffic for passengers and guests coming to the FWA terminal building.
“The construction of the new road also leaves the option for future expansions of the parking lots and the passenger terminal building.”
Phase 3 will see the construction of a new economy parking lot, an exit through the long-term lot and construction of a temporary access point from the new terminal drive to long-term parking.
Additionally, a new sidewalk will be built that will connect the economy and long-term lots. Both the old 2nd Street and old Ross Drive will also be removed.
The terminal road project is currently scheduled to be completed by the end of September.
There are three more phases as part of the terminal road project that will begin following the completion of Phase 3.
Phase 4 will see a new entrance for short-term parking and also the construction of the remaining lanes of the new Ross Drive, while Phase 5 will include curb and gutter placement for long and short-term parking entrances.
Under Phase 6, final surfacing and the placement of markings and final restoration of the construction site will be carried out.
