FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Some big changes are coming to the Fort Wayne International Airport.
This summer the airport will be moving its road to the terminal west.
Airport officials said doing this for planned terminal expansion in the next few years.
They say the airport saw it's busiest year ever in 2017, and only expects that number to continue to grow.
"When we see the increase in passengers in our airport, it is an indicator that the business and the economy in our region is doing well, hence the additional travel," said Scott Hinderman, FWA executive director.
Construction of the new road will take most of the summer, passengers are encouraged to arrive a little earlier for their flights, since there will be some restrictions.
The airport also plans to make improvements to a section of the runway.
