With frigid temperatures and winter weather advisories across the Midwest and Northeast, some flights in and out of Charleston International Airport have been impacted.

If you are flying out of Charleston on Monday, you will want to check with your airline as several flights have already been canceled.

According to the Charleston International Airport website numerous flights have been canceled Monday due to the winter storm. Flights heading to Minneapolis, Nashville and New York have been canceled for Monday.

Some fights to Newark, Detroit, Chicago, Boston and Cleveland have already been canceled. Additional delays are expected at the airport as a widely anticipated construction project gets underway.

Starting on Monday, construction will have one concourse shut down, as well as some traffic lanes. The construction project is part of a terminal redevelopment and improvement program that started earlier this year. Until now, most of the construction has been outside.

"The airport is going to be transformed over the next two years into a facility that is bright, more open and modern," said Paul Campbell, director of airports. "We ask for everyone's patience as we get through the construction."

Beginning Monday Jan. 6 the following changes will begin:

• The central atrium and hallway leading to Concourse A will be closed. Passengers will use a walkway near baggage claim and in front of the Discover Charleston Shop to access both Concourse A and B.

• Restrooms near the Concourse A checkpoint will close. The restrooms at Concourse B checkpoint and those in the passenger boarding areas will remain open.

• Hudson News will consolidate its atrium news stand with the Discover Charleston Shop.

• Four of the eight traffic lanes in front of the terminal building will close for demolition to the front of the terminal. Motorists should use caution and obey speed limits.
