Travelers and other Oakland International Airport (OAK) users are advised of construction activity near terminal roadways over the next few weeks. The closed sections of roadway will be clearly marked and traffic enforcement will be maintained at all times - minimal delays expected.
Contractors are relocating a utility line at the 1st curbside by Terminals 1 and 2 from 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday through Friday until approximately December 15, 2006, requiring the closure of a 200-foot section of the two lanes adjacent to the 1st curbside.
Additionally, from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., December 2 - 4, 2006, trucks will be hauling material from a storage site near the Oakland Maintenance Center to the construction site near the terminals. The loaded trucks will enter inbound Airport Drive from the return to terminal lane and will exit into the construction area. Then, the empty trucks will enter outbound Airport Drive near the parking lot exit plaza and will exit into the material storage site from the return to terminal lane to pick-up more material.
Begun in 2004, the Terminal Improvement Program is designed to add even more convenience, security and service to the travel experience. In Terminal 2, the program encompasses the recently opened seven-gate concourse and waiting areas and baggage claim facility; expanded ticketing and security facilities; and a modern, centralized food, beverage and retail shopping area. Additional improvements to the terminal roadway and curbsides will improve access and ease traffic congestion in front of both terminals. Program completion is expected in 2008.
OAK has over 200 flights a day on 12 domestic and international carriers to 39 nonstop destinations, such as Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, the Hawaiian Islands including Hilo, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Mexico and seasonal service to the Azores (Portugal), Sun Valley, Idaho and Vancouver, British Columbia. 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.
