The portion of Old Dowd Road between Marshall Drive and Wallace Neel Road reopened this morning after a two-month closure. During the closure, crews installed a new drainage system and prepared for construction of the fourth parallel runway and associated taxiways.
The project also required closing Airport Overlook Drive and the former Overlook location. A temporary Overlook opened Oct. 17 at the corner of Old Dowd Road and Airport Overlook Drive.
A new permanent Airport Overlook is currently in design. It will remain on Airport property, very close to Old Dowd Road, and feature spectacular airfield, skyline and terminal views, modern amenities, paved parking and an expanded Food Truck staging area.
