Workers to begin installing new MSP airport highway signs tonight
MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL -- The days of driving to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, only to discover en route that its two terminals are on entirely separate roadways with no signs to tell you which terminal your airline uses, are about to end.
Weather permitting, construction crews will begin installing new highway signs tonight identifying which airlines fly from which MSP terminal, giving drivers the information they need to choose the correct terminal and highway exit for their flight.
The Metropolitan Airports Commission estimates that between 20,000 and 30,000 people each year go to the wrong MSP terminal, often missing their flight as a result. Over the next two weeks, more than 40 signs will be added or replaced along approaches to the airport on Interstate 494, Highway 5, Highway 62 and 34th Avenue to address what had become a significant customer service issue.
