CLT Opens New Entrance Road’s Inbound Lanes

Drivers on Josh Birmingham Parkway headed to CLT are now directed onto the Airport’s new entrance road’s inbound lanes, which merge onto Little Rock Road and directly to the terminal.

The new traffic pattern is a major milestone for Charlotte Douglas, providing a more direct route to the terminal and long term parking lots. Click here to view a video showcasing the new traffic route.

Drivers are encouraged to be alert and follow the variable message signs that are strategically placed along roadways alerting drivers of the change. Traffic officers are also on hand to assist travelers.

Passengers are asked to plan accordingly and allow extra time when visiting the Airport.


Construction of the new $21.5 million airport entrance road began in August 2012. The entire project, which also includes new exit lanes, is scheduled for completion this fall. When finished, the road will improve connections to and from the terminal.
