Beginning Friday, July 8, 2022, all vehicular traffic entering the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport via Brooks Avenue and Airport Road will experience a temporary traffic pattern shift due to the construction of a roundabout on Airport Road (see attached map). Passengers should expect lane reductions upon entering the Airport campus from Brooks Avenue and will traverse a temporary road that will be constructed north of the work zone. The road detour will be posted and detour signs will direct all vehicles through the construction zone.

The objectives of the project are to provide a route from the Airport Road to the Smart Phone Lot and to improve traffic flow and safety through the intersection of Airport Way and the Airport Road. Initial reviews of the traffic flow have indicated that vehicle speeds coming from the Airport Road “Jug Handle” are difficult to judge from the Airport Way intersection.

Passenger Arrival and Departure Access to Terminal:

The Upper Level Departures roadway and the Lower Level Arrivals roadway will remain open for passenger and visitor drop-off and pick-up throughout the duration of construction.

Passenger, Visitor and Employee Parking:

The Hourly Parking Lot (Purple Lot), Long Term Parking Garage (Orange Lot), Weekly Parking Lot (Green Lot) will not be impacted by construction.  All parking lots will remain open and accessible to the public with the exception of the Shuttle lot (Yellow Lot). The Red Lot on Buell Road is open to accommodate Shuttle Parking.  Passengers and visitors are encouraged to follow the signage along the Airport campus to find their desired parking location.

Smart Phone Lot:

The Smart Phone lot, located southwest corner of Airport Road, will remain open during construction as well as the old Smart Phone Lot, located between the Green Lot and Yellow Lot. Signage will be posted throughout the Airport campus directing people to the Smart Phone Lots.

As always, passengers are encouraged to arrive at the Airport at least 90 minutes prior to their departure times and to follow the detour signage during this period.

Detours will be removed end of October 2022.
