A pair of temporary road closures this week and weekend will limit routes into the San Francisco International Airport (SFO), according to a traffic warning issued by airport officials on Wednesday.

The airport's southbound roadway into the international terminal will be closed from midnight to 4 a.m. Thursday and midnight Monday to 4 a.m.

Drivers visiting the airport will be directed to the international terminal via the airport's domestic terminal loop.

The airport saw heavy traffic and road closures in October and December along parts of Highway 101 just outside the airport.

Travelers should make plans to allow for extra time traveling into the airport, officials said.
