Fast Facts: New Hourly Deck and Rental Car Facility


Construction of the Airport’s new Hourly Parking Deck and Rental Car Facility began in November 2011.
  • The new Hourly Deck will replace the East and West Hourly Parking Decks located in front of the terminal building.
  • Replacing the existing parking decks is necessary in order to expand Ticketing, Baggage Claim areas and the Airport’s curbside as well.
  • Once complete, the deck will contain seven levels and 7,000 parking spaces.
  • The top four floors will house 4,000 public parking spaces.
  • The bottom three floors of the deck will include a rental car return facility with 3,000 rental car spaces, check-in counters and a service area to wash and refuel vehicles.
  • Once open, passengers will pick-up and drop-off their rental vehicles inside the deck, eliminating shuttles to and from Rental Car Road.
  • Construction began November 2011, and completion is scheduled for November 2014.
  • Demolition of the West Hourly parking deck began in January.
  • The demolition and removal of the current East Hourly deck began when it closed on Friday, March 1.
