Summer 2023 renovations will temporarily reduce parking capacity
March 1, 2023 (ANCHORAGE, Alaska) – Beginning March 20, ANC parking capacity will be reduced by approximately half. The South Terminal Parking Garage, built in the mid-1980s, will be partially closed for the duration of summer to accommodate construction. This means that parking will be exceedingly limited. Structural restoration, asphalt replacement and re-striping must be completed on the approximately 50-year-old structure. No previous upgrades or major maintenance have occurred since the garage was constructed.
Travelers should allot extra time if they need to utilize parking at the airport. ANC encourages travelers to have plan for drop off or pick up in lieu of using the South Terminal parking garage. On site, other parking options include the North Terminal parking lot, the South Terminal Long-term parking lot and the Park, Ride & Fly, which provides shuttle. Off-site businesses that provide parking and shuttle services should also be considered as an alternative. Other pick-up plans could include people waiting at nearby restaurants, or the cellphone lot, for their traveler to arrive and collect their baggage.
“Summer construction is both necessary and unavoidable,” said Megan Peters, ANC Communications Coordinator. “ANC is attempting to make the parking situation as manageable as possible. We ask for patience while this critical rehabilitation construction is underway and that motorists take their time and follow all informational construction signs.”
On March 20, 2023, barricades will be placed to stop vehicles from parking on levels 3 & 4. All vehicles must vacate levels 3 & 4 by March 31, 2023, at 11:59 pm. Beginning April 1, any remaining vehicles shall be towed. When work is completed for levels 3 & 4, levels 1 & 2 will undergo the same renovations.
Any vehicles that are towed will be relocated to another parking area at ANC. Motorists looking for their vehicle moved due to the construction, or any other parking issue, can call Republic Parking at 907-677-1074.
