Construction Activity Scheduled Near OAK’s Roadways
Travelers and other Oakland International Airport (OAK) users are advised of upcoming lane closures, weather permitting. The closed sections of roadway will be clearly marked and traffic enforcement will be maintained at all times.
From 6:30 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, January 21, the entrance lane to Daily Lot B will be closed for underground utility work. During the closure period, roadway signage will redirect motorists to use Daily Lot A.
From 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m., on Monday, January 23 through Saturday, January 28, the two lanes adjacent to the first curbside at Terminal 2 will be closed so construction crews can connect the roofs of existing Terminal 2 and the Terminal 2 extension currently under construction. Southwest Airline passengers may be dropped-off and picked-up at the second curbside.
From 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., on Monday, January 23 through Friday, January 27, rolling lane closures will occur on John Glenn Drive at the Ron Cowan intersection near the Oakland Maintenance Center. One lane will remain open at all times. The Oakland Maintenance Center is the large hangar with billboard advertisements clearly visible to motorists as they enter the airport terminal area. This construction is part of the multi-phase Terminal Roadway and Curbside project designed to improve terminal access and ease congestion in front of the terminals.
The Terminal Roadway and Curbside project is part of OAK's $350 million Terminal Improvement Program and includes a new, expanded curbside at the terminals to accommodate arriving and departing travelers; expanded and realigned roadways; construction of a new curbside for off-airport parking and hotel shuttle buses; covered pedestrian walkways from the terminals to the Hourly and Daily A parking lots; and a dedicated Return to Terminal lane. Program completion is expected in 2008.
OAK currently has over 200 flights a day on 13 domestic and international carriers to 42 nonstop destinations, including Atlanta, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, the Hawaiian Islands, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and Mexico beach cities, and seasonal service to the Azores (Portugal), Costa Rica and Sun Valley, Idaho. The airport is a revenue division of the Port of Oakland, an independent department of the city of Oakland. Visit oaklandairport.com for more information.
