Airport visitors, don't freak out: The welcome sign is gone

Posted By on Tue, Jun 24, 2014 at 9:10 AM

If you're visiting the Charlotte airport anytime soon, try not to freak out. The "Welcome to Charlotte" entrance sign has been removed to make way for construction of the new exit lanes that will connect drivers to Wilkinson Boulevard, according to a very important update Charlotte-Douglas sent yesterday.

The 16-by-21-foot sign now sits sadly in a storage facility, waiting to be repainted. No plans have been made on where the sign, which, according to the press release, "has been a staple at CLT since the early nineties," will be relocated once construction is finished, in December.

Hopefully no one feels slighted driving down Josh Birmingham Parkway. No big blue sign offering a note of Southern hospitality? The horror!
