Stay current on how construction activities will affect your travels
The Cell Phone Lot, one of our most popular amenities, currently located on Ross Drive, is being relocated to improve safety and accessibility. An added benefit is that this move will also decrease the roadway congestion along Ross Dr., which is a main route for construction traffic hauling equipment and material for our aircraft apron reconstruction project (see below) as well as a new private hangar that is being constructed just west of Corporate Drive. The new cell phone lot is expected to open soon. Keep watch for new signs!
This $30.2 million construction project will be completed in seven (7) phases over the course of two construction seasons (2018 & 2019). Major features will include: removal of the existing failing concrete pavement and replacement with 153,000 square yards of new concrete for future airport development and aircraft loadings; upgrades to the airports deicing material recovery system; upgraded stormwater drainage system and underground utilities to accommodate for future airport development; and reducing energy usage by installation of all new LED apron lighting.
The area outlined in red below shows the areas that will be a part of this project.
Phase 1 of our Gateway Transformation project is complete. This new redesign includes a consolidated passenger security checkpoint, new post-security marketplace, pre- and post-security nursing rooms, a refreshed pre-security business center and new post-security business center, new lounge areas on both concourses, and the new Prospect Hill restaurant and Starbucks located in the post-security marketplace. Located in the Grand Hall is the new President Gerald R. Ford Tribute Room. The exhibit space includes photos, an aircraft carrier model, displays, and rotating historical pieces.

There are no roadway constructions projects that we are currently aware of impacting travels to the airport.
The Airport Viewing Area project is now complete and the entire area is open! We encourage any of our visitors and neighbors to stop by and check out the new amenities that are now available. While you are there, check in on our Viewing Area Facebook Page and feel free to leave us your comments!
