Renovations to the departures entrance ramp at Hobby Airport are finally done.

Traffic had been routed through the parking garage for the 10 months the ramp was closed. Crews had to replace pavement on the ramp as part of a $350 million airport renovation.

Baggage claim is being expanded as is the restaurant space. A new Pappas BBQ restaurant will also open in the airport today.

The city council also recently voted to approve Southwest Airlines' plan to build additional gates for international destinations.
