The Cayman Islands Airports Authority is advising that traffic flow around the Owen Roberts International Airport will be disrupted starting on Monday, March 13, in order to facilitate construction work.

One lane on the main access road will be blocked off by traffic cones, according to the Airports Authority, and motorists are being advised to exercise caution around the area.

The construction work around the main access road is expected to be completed in two weeks.

The work is part of a $55 million dollar expansion and renovation project at the airport that is expected to be completed by the end of next year.

The Cayman Islands Airports Authority reported last month that the project, which will almost triple the capacity of the airport to accommodate 2.5 million passengers a year, was a quarter way through.

The existing terminal was built to handle 500,000 passengers per year, but is currently processing more than one million.
