Walking routes are marked in the CVG baggage claim, Concourse A, Concourse B and the tunnel connecting passengers from security to the concourse. As an added bonus, new water bottle filling stations have been installed along the walking routes as well.
Elsewhere around the country, you’ll find walking paths marked at airports in Dallas/Fort Worth, Indianapolis, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Baltimore, Atlanta, Seattle, Baltimore, Cleveland and several others listed in my recent At the Airport column on USA Today.
So next time you’re at an airport, go take a hike.
The DFW LiveWell Walking Path, measuring seven-tenths of a mile, is aligned with the tiled DFW Art Program floor medallions adorning Terminal D’s boarding gatehouses.
You’ll find the floor medallions stretched out the length of the terminal, from Gate D6 to Gate D40. The Walking Path also features two optional step courses in the form of the 55-foot high staircases at Terminal D’s two Skylink people mover stations.
Those waiting for passengers to arrive can walk the quarter-mile path around the IND ticketing hall. Post-security, there’s a half-mile course around each concourse and a 1.1-mile course around both concourses.
Here are links showing each of IND’s marked paths:
