TPA gears up for new moving walkways
Getting to and from Long Term Parking to the Main Terminal will soon be even easier.
Earlier this month, crews began shutting down the fourth floor of the Long Term Garage to begin construction on two new moving walkways. The project is expected to be complete by December 2022 and open to passengers in early 2023.
All guests parking in the Long Term Garage must travel to Level 4 in order to access the Main Terminal via a pedestrian bridge, so the addition of these new moving walkways is critical to enhancing the experience for all.
These walkways replace the old Long Term Monorail, which is no longer in use. The 20-plus-year-old Monorail system was in need of costly upgrades and had low utilization, making it unfeasible to maintain. TPA opted to go with a pair of moving walkways to improve customer service at a significantly lower price tag.
During construction, passengers will continue to use level 4 to access the Main Terminal. Guests can expect to see widespread construction barricades to help direct them to the Main Terminal and section of the active construction zones.
