NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Millions of dollars will be spent to improve access to Armstrong International.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced Aug. 9 $10 million will be used to plan and design a new interchange near Interstate 10 and Loyola Drive. The interchange will help service a new north airport terminal.

Project managers don't expect to have a plan for the new interchange until next year. "As we go through this environmental process, we're going to determine what that final design is," said DOTD's Shawn Wilson. "I would have much rather been further along in the process of knowing what we're going to build and how best to pay for it. But, because of the conditions that existed we did not get there. That decision did not get made prior to this."

Construction of a north airport terminal is already underway. Airport managers hope the terminal will be ready by October of 2018. The terminal will feature 30 gates and a 23 hundred car parking garage.
