Contractor crews will begin asphalt repair and rehabilitation this week and into the weekend on the Terminal B Loop Road, Rome Circle. The initial work will commence at 10:00 p.m. Thursday, July 25 and end at approximately 5:00 a.m. Friday, July 26. They will then begin asphalt milling and paving on Friday, July 26 at 5:00 p.m. and work around the clock to complete the work midday on Sunday, July 28.
This project also includes new lane markings, including bus stops and crosswalks, to maximize safety. There will be a minimum of two lanes of traffic open at all times. Flagmen will direct traffic around the work area. Contractors will operate at night along terminal curbs as much as possible to limit impact on travelers. All work is weather permitting.
Motorists should greatly slow down and observe construction road signs as they enter the terminal loop. They should use caution and courtesy as they exit the loop and merge into International Circle. Airport visitors should allow extra time for potential traffic slowdowns. Motorists should also use the Cell Phone lot near the Air Traffic Control Tower when waiting for arriving passengers in order to prevent further disruption of traffic due to circling.
The work is not related to the Build KCI New Terminal project, but performs necessary repairs to ensure the roadway remains in safe condition for vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
