  The reinforced concrete walkway weighs approximately 1.7 million pounds.
 
If you are traveling to Bush Intercontinental Airport in the coming week, be aware of a change that could impact your trip and you should allow an extra 30 minutes if you will be entering Terminal A during this event.

Starting on Monday night, March 5, South Terminal Road will be closed at 10 p.m. The road will be reopened the next morning at 5 a.m.

Similar closures of South Terminal Road will occur Tuesday, March 6; Wednesday, March 7; and Thursday, March 8.  The traffic flow will resume normal operations at 5 a.m. on Friday, March 9.

In addition , the Terminal A upper level ramp will be closed from midnight to 4 a.m.  During these closure periods traffic detours will be in place to allow access and egress to and from Terminal A and Terminal B.

Traffic guidance signs and public safety officials will be in place to assist safe and proper traffic flow. Terminal A and Terminal B will continue to be served by passenger departure and pick-up areas, parking lot and rental car area shuttles, and taxi/limousine service.

Access to the Terminals A/B parking garage will be open to the public during this demolition.

The roadway closure is necessary to maintain public safety during the demolition of the passenger walkway bridge connecting Terminal B to Flight Station 7.

The improvements to the Terminal B facility represent a joint venture between Houston Airports and United Airlines.

• Bridge is 280 feet in length, 18 feet in width and 16 feet tall
• Structure was originally built in 1968
• The connector weighs about 1.7 million pounds
• Crews will cut the concrete structure and remove it in sections.
