Peak summer blooms flourish outside exit 5 at Terminal 1.

Colorful blooms are overflowing across the Airport as we hit the mid-point of the summer. Lambert-St. Louis International Airport has an aggressive landscaping plan to beautify the entrances and public areas around the terminals. This year, Lambert added new planters between entrances 4 and 5 along Departures Drive. The planters showcase native birch trees along with bright annuals that hit their peak in the summer. This is the last summer for this unique backdrop view showcasing the aged patina of Terminal 1’s copper roof. In the coming months, crews will advance to this end of the terminal to complete the installation of new copper roofing.
