Road Closures
Vol.5 Issue 7

As a result of the construction work associated with the Multi-Purpose Building (MPB), your route to the office on the Aeronautical Center may need to be adjusted. Beginning October 28, 2019, Denning Ave. between Lindy Ritz Lane and SW 66th will be temporarily closed for construction work associated with the MPB Renovation Project. The sidewalk along Denning Avenue will also be closed.

Both Denning Avenue. and the sidewalk will be re-opened by approximately November 18, 2019, subject to weather. The parking lot north of the Launching Pad can still be accessed during this time.

Regarding the road construction outside of the Center, you may already know, but 74th Street has been closed between S. MacArthur Boulevard and Regina Avenue until November 12th, 2019 (keeping in mind that weather may cause delays). Despite the closure, there are plenty of ways to get to the gates.

Additionally, the roads near the Will Rogers World Airport are being maintained. Since October 14th, lanes were narrowed on Terminal Drive, the main roadway in and out of the airport terminal area, as part of a $4.5 Million reconstruction project. A document was created that explains the details and the three phases of construction.
