MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - If you need to pick up somebody at Wisconsin's largest airport, don't plan to use the roadway near the baggage claim area -- not for a while, anyway.  

Officials at Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport say the current road is being replaced, and a new glass canopy will cover the lanes.  

It's part of a major renovation at Mitchell, and the baggage claim area is among the last to be modernized.  

Motorists who pick up passengers are urged to use the hourly parking area instead. Free parking has been extended to one hour, to allow enough time to pick up those who fly in.  

Interim airport director Terry Blue says all traffic along the terminal will follow the check-in areas -- and they'll get congested if drivers circle the roadways while waiting for passengers to arrive.

It's been almost 30 years since Mitchell's baggage claim area was remodeled.
