SEA Airport Kicks Off Cell Phone Lot Improvements
With summer travel steadily increasing at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), a little preparation goes a long way towards lowering summer travel stress. New facilities and amenities can help you save time, minimize time in crowded lines, and travel with peace of mind this summer.
Just north of the Main Terminal construction is now underway at the cell phone waiting lot. One of the most congested areas in the airport, the completed project will create a dedicated new entrance, improve traffic signals, reconfigure the parking area and make roadway improvements along both S. 170th Street and Air Cargo Road.
Construction will be on-going this summer (the best time to do this work) and planning ahead with alternatives to the cell phone waiting lot can help you avoid potential delays:
- Use alternate transportation, such as light rail, shuttles, transit, or rideshare options
- Park in the Airport Garage – and meet your party at the terminal for just $5/hour and avoid the Arrival drives.
- If using the drives, Think Opposite – by picking up travelers on the Departures level; and dropping off on the Arrivals level.
The project is expected to open in the fall of 2021 ahead of the winter holidays. For updated information on the Cell Phone Waiting Lot progress, visit the online project page which includes an animated map of the new access route.
