TPA kicks off 2-year roadway widening project

Tampa International Airport on Oct. 27 kicked off nearly two years of roadway construction as part of an effort to widen the George J. Bean Parkway to accommodate projected passenger growth.

The project is a key element of TPA’s Master Plan, which will ultimately allow the Airport to handle 35 million annual passengers. Passengers can expect to see periodic roadway closures and detours during this time.

TPA recommends all guests to arrive two hours prior to departure to allow ample time to get to their gate.

Please be mindful of roadway construction and follow all posted speed limits.

The construction began overnight on Sunday, Oct. 27 with a roadway restriping project that closed a section of the inbound George J. Bean Parkway. Guests can expect to see traffic cones and new traffic patterns when coming into the Airport during the nearly two years of roadway construction.

Message boards and/or construction signage will be in place to advise passengers of impactful closures.

TPA will post notifications of construction changes on social media and TPA’s online newsroom. Please follow Tampa International Airport on Twitter at @FlyTPA or subscribe to our newsletter at news.tampaairport.com.
