Long Beach Airport Road Improvements Require Temporary Lane Closures
The Californer/10276457

Long Beach, CA ~ Long Beach Airport (LGB) is currently undergoing a major improvement project that will result in a more efficient and accessible terminal for travelers. As the project progresses, travelers are advised to expect changes to the pick-up and drop-off area in front of the Historic Terminal.

Starting on Monday, April 15, and lasting until the end of June, there will be a reduced number of lanes available for active loading and unloading at the pick-up and drop-off area. Only two lanes closest to the Historic Terminal will be open, with the center median and two adjacent lanes to the east closed off.

To ensure a smooth and easy experience for all travelers, LGB is encouraging passengers to plan ahead and follow some helpful tips. It is recommended that travelers arrive at least 90 minutes before their departure time, especially for morning flights. For those picking up passengers, it is advised to wait in one of two free Cell Phone Waiting Lots located on the northwest and southwest corners of Lakewood Boulevard and E. Donald Douglas Drive. This will help alleviate traffic congestion as circling around Donald Douglas Drive or waiting at the curb can cause delays for everyone.
