Beginning Monday, October 8, lanes will be closed along segments of the Terminal B/C Ticketing (upper-level) roadway 24 hours-per-day until mid-November.
Lane reductions around work zones are expected to produce congestion, especially at peak travel times. Back-ups could extend throughout airport roadways.
Behind cones and barricades, the roadway will be treated with waterproofing materials as part of the construction of two New Security Checkpoints below.
As each segment is completed, the work zone will shift to another portion of the Ticketing roadway.
To help alleviate roadway congestion during construction, the Airport Cell Phone Lot will close effective October 8. Drivers should use Terminal Garages A, B or C (park free up to 60 minutes) to avoid the work zones.
Guidance for drivers will be continuously broadcast on AM 1640, the airport’s roadway advisory radio station.
The speed limit in the work zone is 15 miles per hour.
Beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, October 8, the pickup location for airport shuttle buses to rental cars and economy parking will relocate to Door 4 on the Terminal B/C Ticketing (upper) Level. A separate advisory will be issued and posted online.
All changes are effective Monday, October 8.
The lane closures will be in effect 24/7, in segments, for several weeks.
When Project Journey is completed in 2021, two new 50,000-square-foot buildings with security checkpoints will replace three smaller checkpoints currently serving Terminal B/C – increasing the post-security space to include all of National Hall and its premier shops and restaurants for ticketed travelers. In addition, a new 14-gate concourse will replace Gate 35X – ending the need for travelers to ride buses to board regional jets parked outside. Concourse amenities will include jetbridges, holdrooms, concessions and an American Airlines Admirals Club lounge.
