Shreveport Regional Airport to begin terminal awning refurb, traffic to be affected

Crews will begin working on refurbishing the awning covering the entrance to the terminal building at Shreveport Regional Airport Monday, Jan. 10.

To safely work on the building, several traffic lanes and sidewalks will be closed to vehicles and
pedestrians. As passengers enter the airport traffic loop, signage will direct drivers to the correct lanes to use during the construction project. All three parking lots will remain open and operational during the construction project.

“The airport is the first thing travelers see when they arrive in Shreveport and the last thing they see when they leave. This refurbishment is long overdue, and we are excited to have a virtually brand-new terminal awning when this project is completed,” said Stephanie Tucker, Interim Director of Airports for the Shreveport Airport Authority.

During the construction project, the SPORTRAN bus hub has been moved from the airport traffic loop to Interstate Drive on airport property near the TacAir building. The Taxi/Limousine pickup area has also been moved to the first row of the Short Term Parking Lot, with signage in place to direct passengers.

The awning refurbishment project is scheduled to last 120 days and finish up before the busy summer flight schedule.
