The Detroit Metro Airport has officially changed the name of the North Terminal to Warren Cleage Evans Terminal after 14 years. It was unanimously voted to rename the terminal after the Wayne County Executive, Warren C. Evans. The Wayne County Airport Authority voted on the name change in June 2021. The rededication ceremony took place on Monday, April 4th.

Warren C. Evans has been a public servant for the majority of his life. He was elected as Wayne County Executive in November 2014. He has served as the Detroit Chief of Police and was appointed the Wayne County Sheriff in 2003, serving until 2009. Mr. Evans also served on many boards including the Downtown Detroit Partnership, Southeast Council of Governments, and The Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The Evans Terminal is adjacent to the McNamara Terminal. The McNamara Terminal is exclusive to Delta Airlines travelers. The McNamara Terminal was named after Edward H. McNamara who was a public servant as well. The Evans Terminal is for travelers flying Southwest, American, United, Spirit and other airlines.

The honor is usually given to public figures that have passed away. It is remarkable to be able to see the honor bestowed to Mr. Evans while he is still alive.

So if you are catching flights out of Detroit Metro Airport be sure to look out for the newly named Evans Terminal.
