Airport To Begin Next Phase of Terminal 1 Roadway Improvements
Posted on April 22, 2019 in Media Releases
St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) will reopen the south lanes of Terminal 1 Arrivals Drive by early morning Thursday, April 25 which will kick start phase two of a road improvement project. The new phase will simultaneously shut down the north lanes of Arrivals Drive, requiring additional detours for passengers and visitors needing to connect to various ground transportation options. Phase two of the Arrivals Drive project will take up to 12 weeks.
With the north lanes of Arrivals Drive in Terminal 1 closed, rental car shuttles and on and off-airport parking shuttles will return to their original locations on the center island. Pedestrians will be directed to proceed to the garage through Exit 14 or Exit 16 and take the elevators to the green level of the parking garage. Passengers may then proceed through the pedestrian walkways from the garage to the center island for pickup from car rental or parking shuttles.
Passenger pickup will remain on the yellow level of the Terminal 1 parking garage during phase two of the project. As during the first phase, drivers picking up arriving passengers will have a 15 minute grace period in the Terminal 1 parking garage. STL strongly encourages drivers to use the Terminal 1 Cell Phone Lot while waiting for passengers to deplane before heading to the garage for pickup. Hotel and motel shuttles, employee shuttles, Ride App (Uber and Lyft) and charter bus pickup locations will all remain in the same location, Ticketing Level, Exit 6, as during phase one. The staircase between Arrivals Drive and Departures Drive will also be demolished during this phase, and will reopen in the fall with a new staircase and railing.
This work is being done as part of routine roadway rehabilitation of the concrete pavement surface. STL will have updated signage directing passengers in impacted areas to the new, temporary pickup locations. Terminal 2 and Lambert International Boulevard will not be impacted by these closures.
