Extra traffic congestion today, Wednesday at airport

Traffic at Charlotte Douglas International Airport could be especially congested Tuesday and Wednesday because of lane closures scheduled at the intersection of Old Dowd and Rental Car roads.

Crews are building a traffic roundabout. Flagging crews and traffic control officers will be directing traffic both days.

Motorists headed to the airport can avoid the congestion by using the new entrance road’s inbound lanes.

People leaving the airport are urged to use Josh Birmingham Parkway and the Billy Graham Parkway to reach interstates 85 and 77. Steve Lyttle
