Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is gearing up for a busy Memorial Day weekend.

Nearly 2 million passengers are expected to travel through Atlanta’s airport over the holiday.

The airport is undergoing a large-scale renovation.

Officials say the most public-facing construction projects will be put on hold during the weekend, but some projects will continue.

This may impact traffic flow, so they want passengers to be prepared.

Officials urge travelers to be mindful of what's packed in their carry-on bags, in order to get through security screening quickly.

Arrive at the airport at least two hours early if traveling domestic, and three hours early if traveling internationally.
