With the temporary closure to I-24 Exit 4 in both directions in effect until August 12, anyone coming to the airport will need to utilize Exit 3 for fast, easy, and direct access to the airport.
If you are coming from the west, you will take exit 3 and turn left at the end of the off ramp. If you are coming from the east,(Illinois) you will need to make a right. This will put you on KY 305 Cairo Rd.
follow the road until you come to a "Y" and veer to the left. This will take you to the light at U.S. HWY 60, at which point you will go straight through the light to get to the airport.

It will also allow for the installation of sidewalks along the roadway making the entire area walkable. Work is expected to be completeed and the new roadway opened by August 12.
