Airport Connector is open!
The 1.6-mile Airport Connector opened Jan. 14, 2011 - about two months ahead of schedule. The new road links Pocahontas 895 to Charles City Road and Airport Drive to lead directly into the heart of Richmond International Airport. The new road allows airport travelers to bypass four sets of traffic lights and a rail crossing along the old Laburnum Avenue route, and is expected to save up to 10 minutes on their trip. American Infrastructure was the design-build contractor for the project.
