Beginning today, contractors for Tyler Pounds Regional Airport  will be moving fill dirt across the entry road that leads to the commercial airport terminal building. 

Passengers should not expect any measurable delays as a result of the work but are urged to obey all construction traffic signs and drive slowly in the construction area.  

“We have carefully worked with our contractor to be very attentive to airline schedules so that we can coordinate their work to minimize impacts to travelers driving to the terminal,” said Airport Manager Davis Dickson.  “We also ask our passengers to allow for a few more minutes in their drive plans to allow for slower speeds through the construction zone.”

The work is expected to last two to three months. Skyway Boulevard will not be closed to traffic.
