As Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport airport steps up construction of massive canopies outside the terminal, more vehicle traffic will be squeezed into less space at the world's busiest airport.

The airport will close the Terminal North upper roadway at 9 p.m. Monday evening until Tuesday morning at 5 a.m. The lower roadway will be open during that time.
