Construction work at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, set to begin late tonight, will cause some traffic delays for much of the spring and summer outside of the terminal.
Both the upper departures deck and the lower arrivals area will undergo significant structural improvements including milling, paving and striping, as well as concrete and sidewalk repairs.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane weekday mornings from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m. Early travelers are urged to arrive at the terminal at least 90 minutes before scheduled departure. Updates will be available at buffaloairport.com and at 1580 AM on the radio dial.
The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority says the improvements are needed to shore up the airport's infrastructure and ensure visitors' safety.
