Major traffic changes coming for Hartsfield-Jackson airport

ATLANTA - In just a few days, drivers in Atlanta will see a major traffic shift at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Channel 2's Kerry Kavanaugh met with airport officials who say they hope a new detour will be in place on Wednesday, but with the wet roads, they are unable to stripe the roads.

In the coming days, southbound traffic heading to the north terminal will notice a difference that should improve traffic at the airport.

Kavanaugh got a tour of the detour site that is expected to help the merge of traffic coming from Interstate 85 and Camp Creek Parkway.

The detour will extend the distance to the north terminal to give drivers a bit more time to make their way to the right lane.

This is just one phase of a major roadway makeover at the airport.

This detour should be in place until next spring.
