This project was the first phase of the overall parking deck replacement program. The 1,923,656 sf, seven-level garage was constructed on a vacant site between the airport’s Rental Car Center and the City of College Park’s Gateway Center. The garage has approximately 5,600 parking spaces and has a parking guidance system with tracks the number of cars entering and exiting, displays available space counts and tracks the number of open spaces on each deck. A pedestrian walkway provides a link the garage to the SkyTrain, the automated people mover linking the garage to the terminal.
