The Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA) Board of Directors voted unanimously to rename the North Terminal at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) in honor of Wayne County Executive Warren Cleage Evans.
The terminal opened in 2008 to offer customers another world-class option at DTW. The dedication ceremony honoring Evans will be held in Spring 2022, providing time for the airport authority to establish a process to phase out the North Terminal name.
“Mr. Evans has devoted his entire adult life to public service, personally and professionally,” said WCAA Board Chair Marvin Beatty. “Not to mention, he has always been an advocate for our airport system, which is an economic engine and a job creator in our region. The WCAA Board is pleased Mr. Evans accepted our invitation to rename the North Terminal in his honor.”
