After nine months of construction, Fort Wayne International Airport has completed on its new terminal entrance road. The airport says the project has created a new entrance leading up to the main terminal building and new entrances for all parking lots.
Construction began in April and was completed in six phases. The airport says the project included major changes to the way passengers access the terminal, including LED lighting, new signage and an improved cell phone lot for those waiting for arriving passengers.
"The new terminal road is another testament to the growth that our airport has been experiencing over the last several years," Scott Hinderman, executive director of the Fort Wayne International Airport, said in a news release. "Not only does the new terminal entrance road create a more streamlined way for airport passengers and visitors to arrive at the terminal building, it also supports future growth for the airport."
The airport says it has seen eight consecutive years of passenger growth and the new terminal road supports a continuation of that growth, as well as plans for future terminal improvements and expansion. The airport will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new terminal entrance road Thursday afternoon.
