HOUSTON - Officials at Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport are reminding travelers about upcoming road closures at Terminal A and B.
The road closures come as Bush Airport and United Airlines work together to improve Terminal B, including the demolishing of the remaining passenger bridges.
Airport officials said the road closures begin on Saturday, August 10, including the complete closure of South Terminal Road which will cause the most impact.
Below are the road closure times:
- Saturday, August 10 at noon through Sunday, August 11 at 6 a.m.
- Sunday, August 11 at 10 p.m. through Monday, August 12 at 5 a.m.
- Monday, August 12 at 10 p.m. through Tuesday, August 13 at 5 a.m.
- Tuesday, August 13 at 10 p.m. through Wednesday, August 14 at 5 a.m.
- Wednesday, August 14 at 10 p.m. through Thursday, August 15 at 5 a.m.
Travelers, employees and those picking up passengers are encouraged to arrive early, as these road closures will cause extra traffic surrounding Terminals A and B. United Airlines customers are urged to use either Terminal C or Terminal E for check-in to avoid traffic issues altogether on Saturday.
Houston police officers will be on-hand to help facilitate traffic flow. Signs will also be posted to help drivers navigate the re-routing of traffic.
For people needing to access Terminal A:
- All bus traffic, including the rental car buses, will be routed to the west curb.
- Private vehicles picking up passengers will be routed to the north curb zone, but traveling opposite direction.
- Private vehicles dropping off passengers will be routed opposite direction through the terminal A U-ramp.
- Taxis will use the south curb as they normally do.
For people needing to access Terminal B:
- The Terminal B U-ramp will be closed to normal traffic during each of these closures but employees will be allowed to use that ramp to access rooftop parking.
- All arrival/departure traffic for Terminal B will be routed to the north curb zone with the exception of taxi and limousine traffic which will use the western portion of the south curb.
