Nashville International Airport makes traffic, parking changes

DAVIDSON COUNTY Driving patterns are about to change at Nashville International Airport, the Metro Airport Authority said Wednesday. Changes include: • The Long Term parking lot is now Long Term A, and the former seasonal overflow lot east of Donelson Pike will soon open permanently as Long Term B. • The entrance to Long Term A and Short Term Parking has moved. They have a common parking ticket dispenser station that will open Wednesday, Oct. 28, weather permitting. • Short-term parkers will stop at a second parking ticket dispenser at the entrance to the Short Term garage, where they will validate their tickets to enter the garage. • The cell phone/waiting area will reopen today in a new location with more than twice as much space, giving drivers a free place to wait to pick up arriving passengers. Changes will be marked with directional signs to help drivers reach their destinations. "The traffic flow will be very different, and it will be imperative that airport visitors allow a few extra minutes, watch their speed and pay close attention to signage until they are familiar with the improved layout," Raul Regalado, president and CEO of the airport authority, said in a release. — MICHAEL CASS THE TENNESSEAN
