KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Officials of Kansas City International Airport are advising travelers to give themselves extra time to get to the airport because of construction that could cause congestion for nearly two months.

Spokesman Joe McBride says the airport is replacing six overhead signs along the main roads to the airport to help people more easily find their flights.

He says the new electronic signs will be more visible and attractive than the old ones, and will allow airport employees to change messages from their offices instead the roadside.

Work on the $1 million project begins Tuesday and is expected to last six to seven weeks.

McBride says the contractor will have one lane open at all times during construction.
