A six-month lighting retrofit and maintenance project in a large Sacramento International Airport parking garage will require individual garage floors to close and cause the structure to be filled to capacity at times.
Airport officials are replacing 1,800 high-pressure sodium lights with energy efficient LEDs in the parking garage that serves Terminal A and B. The upgrade will improve visibility and annually save the county $167,000 in energy and maintenance costs.
Crews will also clean the ceiling and floor and repaint parking stall and traffic markings in the six-story garage.
The first floor closed Feb. 20 and will partially open March 10. Work is scheduled to continue a floor at a time in three- to four-week increments. The project is scheduled to be completed by July 18.

Airport officials say that when the garage fills, signs will direct motorists to the daily lot just south of the garage.
