Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport has struck a $181.5 million deal to build a new parking deck that will be reachable via the airport SkyTrain.
The Atlanta airport is building the parking deck to replace parking being displaced during construction of various airport projects including in the West economy lot where a new InterContinental hotel will be built, the park-ride reserve lot that sits where an end-around taxiway will be built, the North economy lot where an extension to Concourse T will be built.
The projects are part of Hartsfield-Jackson's $6 billion modernization and expansion plan.
The new parking deck -- reachable by the SkyTrain people-mover that goes from the airport to the rental car center and Georgia International Convention Center -- will also serve as additional parking when the domestic terminal parking decks are demolished and rebuilt in coming years.
The new ATL West parking deck will also serve as additional parking in the future to accommodate growth at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
