(Omaha, NE) -- The road to Eppley Airfield's terminal is temporarily changing.
The Omaha Airport Authority says as part of the Terminal Entrance Roadway Expansion project, a temporary entrance from Abbott Drive to the Eppley Airfield Terminal will open on Tuesday, November 9, 2021. The OAA says the temporary entrance is south of the old entrance and will remain in use until a new permanent entrance is opened in the summer of 2022.
The Airport Authority says drivers should follow the directional signs on Abbott Drive to access the Terminal via the temporary entrance. The OAA says in order to prepare for Eppley Airfield’s future growth, the Airport Access and Parking Modernization program is expanding the roadway leading to the Terminal and modernizing the South Garage. Access to the Terminal and South Garage will be maintained during all phases of construction.
OAA says customers may encounter occasional minor detours on the roadway; however, no significant delays are anticipated. Travelers can learn more about these projects and receive construction updates from the program website and Eppley Airfield social media channels.
