Summer Construction at BGR

Posted on July 21, 2014 by

During the next couple months, passengers traveling to BGR will see some traffic pattern changes, as paving begins this week.

2014 BGR Paving

Phasing of 2014 Godfrey Blvd. Construction

The roadway on Godfrey Blvd. past the Maine Ave./Godfrey Blvd. round-a-bout, will be down to one lane for the majority of the summer. Please follow the signs for temporary passenger pick-up and drop-off in the Short Term parking lot, as drop-off in front of the Domestic Terminal will not be possible during this time. The first 15 minutes of parking in the parking lot is FREE! 

Parking lot and car rental return entrances will be periodically affected. We will be making paving update announcements via our facebook and Twitter pages as phases change. However, passengers should plan an extra 15-20 minutes for travel time to BGR, especially as several flight departure times happen around the same time. Typically, passengers are encouraged to arrive at least 1-2 hours prior to flight departure to park, check luggage, and process security screening. During this time, please plan to arrive closer to the 2 hours prior to scheduled departure, to ensure you catch your flight.   

Also, during this time, the Taxi stand at BGR will be moved to Short Term Parking as well as all other ground transportation pick ups (buses, shuttles, etc.)  Passengers arriving to BGR that need ground transportation services, should proceed across the designated walkway to the Short Term Lot.

The construction that is taking place will help improve access to BGR and make the roadways safer for the winter season. Finally, to recap:

  • Passenger Pick-up/Drop Off has moved to Short Term Parking, and the first 15 minutes are free.
  • Passengers traveling to BGR needing a Taxi should proceed to the Short Term Lot where they will be waiting. As will shuttle and bus pick-up.
  • Passengers flying out of BGR should arrive approximately 2 hours prior to their scheduled departure to allow for new traffic patterns for parking/drop-off and Summer flight times.
  • Check BGR’s Facebook/Twitter pages for construction updates, as we transition through phases.
