News Releases

May 21, 2012 (Updated: Feburary 26, 2013)

CONSTRUCTION ALERT
LANE CLOSURES ON LOWER ROADWAYS - SEISMIC RETROFIT

WHAT:
A portion of the lower (arrival) level of the Airport roadway will be narrowed to allow for construction on the pillars reinforcing the upper (departure) level roadway. Portions of the white passenger pickup lanes and curb will be narrowed as well.

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:
The overall Seismic Retrofitting project is ongoing through 2013.

WHY:
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.
