D2 Projects: Parking Garages

This project provided two five-level parking garages close to the Terminal for daily parking.  These are the first garages constructed at the Airport.  Previously, daily parking existed in the surface lot in front of the airport along with hourly parking.  That lot has been converted to hourly parking and valet.

A covered pedestrian walkway from Daily Garage 2 connects to the Ticketing level of the Main Terminal.  An underground pedestrian walkway from Daily Garage 1 with moving sidewalks connects via escalators to the Arrivals/Baggage Claim level of the Main Terminal.  In the future it will also connect directly to the security screening mezzanine and to a future Metrorail train station to be built below the walkway.
