Temporary Ramp Closures Will Require Short Detour Beginning Aug. 2, Weather Permitting
Beginning Monday, Aug. 2, weather permitting, ongoing work on the US 40 Improvements Project will require the temporary closure of two ramps:
- Ramp from southbound Airport Access Rd. to US 40
- Ramp from US 40 to northbound Airport Access Rd.
Short detour in place through Oct. 1
A detour using Concorde Dr., Freight Dr., Cargo Rd., Boeing Dr. and Terminal Dr. will be marked with signage. The detour is expected to add under five minutes of travel time for drivers, but the temporary ramp closures will allow the overall project to be completed in a shortened time frame.
Traffic switch expected on US 40 between Dog Leg Rd. and Peters Pk.
As crews continue to make progress throughout the project area, a new traffic pattern is expected to be put in place on US 40 in the coming weeks. Traffic will be shifted to the north side of US 40 so that stabilization, reconstruction, and widening work can begin on the south side.
Please use extra caution when driving through the project area.
The US 40 improvements proactively address anticipated growth over the next several decades to ensure efficient traffic flow for all who travel through the area. When completed, the improvements will address roadway design issues while adding capacity.
