Parking Limitations:

ANC would like to thank everyone for their ongoing patience with our South Terminal Parking Garage construction. We know, it feels like it is taking forever but there is an end in sight. Parking will continue to be limited until construction winds down in October. Travelers should allot extra time to either find parking on or off-site. Please obey all construction information signs around the airport and drive safely. Learn more about parking options and the construction project at: ANC Parking Garage Partial Closure – Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ancairport.com)

No RVs or Other Oversized Vehicles Under the South Terminal Loop Bridge:

A gentle reminder that any vehicle over 10’6” (RVs, sprinter vans, oversize vehicles, etc.) must use the commercial curb at the South Terminal. There is a sign with flashing lights to warn drivers of the height restriction before the entrance under the South Terminal Loop bridge. There is also a safe turnout to use to switch to the commercial pickup curb.

RV damage caused from hitting the underside of the bridge can be substantial, not to mention the cost of damage to ANC infrastructure. If you do not know how tall your vehicle is, please do not go under the Terminal Loop Bridge.

Construction at the Airport:

ANC is doing an extension of Taxi way Z, which is near South Airport Park (near Kulis). Construction is ongoing 7 days a week with heavy equipment running from 7am to 7pm. Occasionally the contractor will perform maintenance on the equipment during evening hours. The project is slated to be completed on Oct. 1. The Airport is working with the contractor to keep construction-related noise to a minimum.
