KCI Airport Terminal C Roadwork to Begin


Weather permitting, on Monday, July 22 contractors will begin work on the Terminal C loop road at Kansas City International Airport.

The pre-scheduled work will pave the way for the Kansas City Aviation Departmentís target of closing Terminal A by year end to accommodate impending airline mergers and to save money on operation and maintenance of the building. The work will be finished in advance of US Airways and United Airlines moving into Terminal C so the roadway will be prepared for the increased traffic. The work needs to occur to improve and stabilize the roadway to bridge the years as new facilities are contemplated, planned or built.

The project involves milling, some full-depth repairs, paving striping, and curb repairs. This work will require the closure of some traffic lanes and access to some areas of the terminal curb and commercial medians. The project should take 105 days to complete, weather permitting.

To minimize inconvenience to customers, work that requires terminal curb closure will be done in large sections during off-peak times and on weekends. At times traffic may be congested. KCI Airport users are urged to allow extra time and patience when using the airport during this time. Signs, KCI Airport Police and other personnel will be on hand to aid and direct customers.
