Traffic & Pedestrian Pattern Updates The steel for the passenger walkway canopy from the parking garage to the terminal is installed. The lower level outer roadway concrete pour is nearly complete for the bus and ground transportation lane. Landscaping adjacent to the parking garage continues. Replacement of roadway wayfinding signage is nearly complete. The Upper Level Departures roadway remains CLOSED until project completion at the end of October 2018. All traffic must use the Lower Level Roadway for both Arrivals & Departures. Family and friends picking up passengers are highly encouraged to stage in the new Smart Phone Lot, to reduce curbside congestion, until they have been notified that their party is at the curb with luggage ready for pick up at the corresponding numbered column.

The Arrivals Level remains impacted with detours for various entrances and exits to the terminal and related crosswalks. Parking Shuttle Pick Up and Rideshare (Lyft/Uber) is taking place at the EAST end of the arrivals roadway, marked with a GREEN #16 at Lower Exit B. RTS bus pick up and drop off is taking place on Brooks Avenue at Airport exit - pedestrians are able to cross on foot at the lower center exit and follow signs through the short term parking lot. Valet Operations have been suspended until November 2018. Valet passengers may wish to use Premium Parking in the Long Term Ramp Garage during this time.
