Major Construction Alert: Evening Road Detours at BNA® on May 5

Nashville International Airport® encourages travelers and those dropping off or picking up passengers to arrive early on the evening of Wednesday, May 5, to avoid possible delays. Several road and walkway detours will be in place from approximately 6 p.m. – 4 a.m. (weather permitting) to allow for ongoing construction of the airport’s new roof canopy. Ample directional signage will be in place.

  • Notably, the airport exit 216-A from I-40 East will be closed during this time, with traffic routed to the Donelson Pike South exit 216-B. (I-40 West exits will not be impacted.)
  • All passenger drop-offs will be at Terminal Garage 1 (use the Valet entrance across from the terminal.) All passenger pick-ups will be at Terminal Garage 2 (use the Ground Transportation Center entrance.) Click here for maps showing how to get to each location.
  • Those picking up passengers are encouraged to wait in Economy Lot B until their party is ready to be picked up and to follow signs to their destination. (The normal cell waiting lots will be closed overnight, but Economy Lot B will be a FREE waiting lot that night.)

There will be several additional nights in May for the same work, and notice will again be provided. The work will occur during BNA’s slowest air travel days and times.
