Also, this Sunday, Ellis Road – the main road to the airport terminal – will be milled in preparation for paving. Traffic will be restricted to one lane, and drivers can expect a rough surface.

Weather permitting, paving will occur starting on Wednesday. Service roads Altimeter Road and Beacon Road, as well as the extension to the airport’s long-term parking lot,  will also be getting paved as part of the project. Motorists should drive slowly and watch for signage and workers.
