The two top floors of the Sacramento International Airport parking garage will be out of service for the next month for pavement sealing work.
The elevated roadway at Terminal B also will be partially closed every other night for the next few weeks for sealing, but the airport will leave at least one lane open at all times. The roadway work will be performed from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Airport officials said the garage is likely to fill to capacity at times during the month of work. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are typically the heaviest garage usage days. Officials encourage airport users to pay attention to overhead roadway signs when entering airport grounds for updates and direction to open parking lots.
The work is expected to be finished in mid to late August. Crews will be sealing the garage’s sixth floor with weatherproof concrete. All or part of the fifth floor will be closed as well to reduce the possibility of vehicles coming into contact with the sealant.
The parking garage is located between Terminal A and Terminal B, and is connected to each terminal via elevated walkways.
Airport officials say the work is being done during warm, dry weather to allow the sealant to cure. Director of Airports John Wheat apologized for the inconvenience. “This is necessary preventive maintenance and we are doing everything we can to minimize disruption to customer traffic.”
