Elm Road lanes to close near car return area

Some lanes on Elm Road near BWI's rental-car return area will be closed between midnight and 5 a.m. Thursday due to road work in the area. The work is part of utility improvements related to the airport's expansion program.

Flight schedules are light during the lane closures, airport officials said.
