Long Beach Airport (LGB) held a ribbon cutting ceremony today to celebrate the renovations to Parking Structure A in time for the busy holiday travel season. The improvements to the parking structure, located nearest to the Historic Terminal, are meant to complement the easy travel experience for all LGB visitors.
“This project is a part of a larger vision of ensuring that the Long Beach Airport remains a world-class airport for ease and efficiency for residents and visitors alike,” said Mayor Robert Garcia.
Parking Structure A closed January 7, 2017 in preparation for renovations. The improvements to the structure allow for improved pedestrian and vehicular traffic flow, and consist of:
New dual-cab elevator tower with glass windows overlooking the Historic Terminal and LGB airfield.
New outdoor metal stairwell adjacent to the elevator tower.
New dual-lane passenger vehicle exit.
Implementation of Airport wayfinding sign programs.
Significant aesthetic improvements, including interior and exterior painting and landscaping areas surrounding the structure.
The replacement of over 240 High Pressured Sodium (HPS) fixtures with new energy efficient LED lighting, providing superior illumination that promotes safety and security.
Restriping throughout the Parking Structure.
The addition of 80 Clean Air Vehicle parking spaces as required per California Green Building Standards Code.
“Long Beach is beaming with pride today,” said Councilwoman Stacy Mungo. “The improvements to the parking structure not only offer accessibility and safety for travelers, but truly complement our award-winning facility.”
The parking structure provides more than 1,000 parking spaces within walking distance of the terminal. The parking structure renovation project was awarded to R.J. Daum Construction Company. The total cost of construction was $5 million.
“Long Beach Airport strives to provide a first-class experience for all,” said Airport Director Jess Romo. “The renovations to Parking Structure A will enhance the travel experience by providing greater accessibility just steps away from the terminal.”
Self-parking is available in Parking Structures A and B at the rate of $2 per hour, with a maximum of $19 per day in Parking Structure A and $17 in Parking Structure B. For general parking information, contact ABM Parking Services at (562) 377-6116.
