CONSTRUCTION ALERT
LANE CLOSURES ON MACARTHUR BOULEVARD - CITY OF IRVINE STREET MAINTENANCE RESURFACING

CONTINUED LANE CLOSURES ON LOWER AIRPORT ROADWAYS - SEISMIC RETROFIT

WHAT:
Portions of MacArthur Boulevard adjacent to the main entrance and exit to John Wayne Airport will be narrowed to allow for street maintenance resurfacing work by the City of Irvine Public Works Department. A portion of the Lower (arrival) Level of the Airport roadway will also be narrowed to allow for continued construction on the pillars supporting the Upper (departure) Level roadway. Portions of the white passenger pickup lanes and curb will be narrowed as well.

DELAYS SHOULD BE EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE DAY. Airport passengers and visitors are strongly encouraged to give themselves ample time to get to the Airport and through Airport roadways. Drivers picking up passengers at the Airport are encouraged to utilize 2-hour parking spaces located on the lower level of Parking Structures A1, B2 and C - rather than the roadway - while waiting.

WHEN:
City of Irvine Street Maintenance Resurfacing - Effective this weekend only, Saturday, August 25 through Sunday, August 26.

Lane Closures on Lower Airport Roadways - Effective Tuesday, May 22, 2012 through October 2012.

WHY:
Information about the City of Irvine's project is available on their website www.cityofirvine.org/slurry, including a project location map.

The roadway system at John Wayne Airport is undergoing seismic remediation to ensure all structural elements of the upper level roadway are current with the most stringent safety and seismic standards. The roadway pillars will also be "wrapped" according to the new Terminal A, B and C color schemes to better identify passenger pickup locations.
