NEW ORLEANS - Due to the anticipation of high
passenger activity at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport
(MSY) on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018, motorists may experience heavy vehicular
traffic on Airport Access Road and surrounding roadways approaching the
terminal. The public is advised to be patient and prepare for traffic delays
when traveling to or from the Airport.
Law enforcement officers will be present to direct traffic.
As part of the plan to alleviate traffic, vehicles entering the airport from
Airline Drive may be rerouted to the Airport Access Road toward Veterans
Highway to make a U-turn and enter the terminal from that direction.
MSY is currently building a new $1.029 billion airport
terminal on the north side of Airport property, and will move all operations to
that location in May 2019. The new terminal will have more curbsides space for
passenger pickup and drop off, which is expected to reduce congestion on
airport roadways and deliver an improved passenger experience.
