BNA Commences Daily Blasting for New Horizon Expansion Project

Nashville International Airport (BNA) has begun daily blasting for its Terminal Roadway Construction and Enhancements project.

This is part of the airport’s New Horizon expansion project, with the blasting required for the extension of Concourse D and other terminal roadway improvements.

The weekday blasting will temporarily halt traffic on Donelson Pike, Airport Service Road, and Terminal Drive for up to five minutes between 1pm and 3.30pm. These operations are expected to continue through the end of 2024.

All blasting operations will follow strict safety procedures. Those in the vicinity will hear a series of short horns prior to the blast and following the blast to mark changes to traffic. Passengers within the terminal will also be able to hear the blasting.

This work will further advance BNA’s New Horizons project, which includes several key components:

  • Concourse A and D Improvements, including additional gates, moving walkways, and additional concessions
  • A New Air Freight Building to better support airline cargo requirements
  • Terminal Roadway Improvements to increase capacity and ease traffic flow into and out of the airport terminal and parking garages
  • Baggage Handling System Improvements, including upgrades that will sort bags by flight, speed security inspections, and more efficiently deliver passenger luggage
