Airport drop-off roads to close for two days 

The drop-off area in front of the two domestic terminals at San Francisco International Airport will be closed early Tuesday and Wednesday morning, allowing crews to continue construction on a new AirTrain connection bridge.

The roadways in front of Terminals 1 and 3, which handle drop-offs for all domestic airlines except Spirit Airlines and Canadian flights, will be closed from midnight to 5 a.m. on Tuesday, April 17, and Wednesday, April 18, according to an SFO news release.

Passenger drop-off, which is on the upper level of the domestic terminal area, will be the area primarily affected, SFO duty manager Linda Perry said. Drivers trying to drop off a passenger for check-in will be automatically diverted to the lower level, where baggage claim normally takes place, Perry said.

At that hour, when very few planes are taking off and even fewer are landing, there shouldn’t be much impact on people dropping off passengers, particularly as there will be clear signs directing people where to go, according to Perry.

"Some people do check in around 4:30 or 5 [a.m.]," Perry said. "But we’re very, very light at that time and are fairly certain there won’t be any problems."

Still, the airport encourages drivers to park in the terminal garages to avoid possible congestion in the drop-off and pick-up section during the closure, Perry said.
