TRAFFIC ADVISORY -- Roadway Paving Project Offers Smooth Ride Into LA/Ontario International Airport

ONTARIO, CA--(Marketwire - October 26, 2007) - Effective Oct. 29, through November 16, LA/Ontario International Airport (ONT) will undergo a three-week asphalt renovation on Terminal Way. Approximately 275,000 square feet of roadway in front of Terminal 2 and Terminal 4 will be removed and replaced with a new asphalt surface. This project will be performed between the hours of 4 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

During construction, traffic may be redirected to alternate locations for passenger pickup and drop-off. Parking will not be affected, however, brief delays to parking entrances are anticipated. Traffic control personnel will assist in directing and expediting traffic flow during renovation.

Replacing deteriorated asphalt is part of ongoing roadway maintenance that will ensure passenger safety at ONT into future years.

ONT is one of four airports owned and operated by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), a Los Angeles City department that oversees an airport system in the nation's second largest metropolitan area. The other airports owned and operated by LAWA are Los Angeles International, LA/Palmdale Regional and Van Nuys General Aviation. In 2006, LAWA's four airports handled 68 million passengers and 2.7 million tons of cargo a year. In addition, LAWA's airports contribute to an employment base -- directly and indirectly -- of more than 470,000 people and generate nearly U.S. $67 billion annually for the regional economy.
