Construction Causing Headaches at IAH

HOUSTON Traffic at Bush Intercontinental Airport has drivers frustrated and confused as construction crews continue to work on improvements to Terminals A and B.

The terminals serve some of the airport’s biggest carriers, including United, American and Delta airlines. Though they are still open, you cannot pull up to them the way you used to.

As traffic is being re-routed, some drivers find themselves driving in circles.

“It’s a little bit confusing,” driver Gakir Hossain said.

Police officers are helping to redirect the flow. It is a flow that will continue to change over the next few days as construction crews move on to different projects at the terminals.

Their work began at noon on Saturday and will continue through 6 a.m. Sunday. It will then resume every night from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. through Thursday.

Some travelers are wishing it would end sooner. Kim Tracy had difficulty connecting with her ride home.

“My friends are in traffic and they have no idea what’s going on,” she said.

Airport officials recommend tacking on extra time to your visit. In some instances, it may be faster to be dropped off or picked up at the airport’s other terminals.
