Parking Garage Expansion Project – Completed!
Tulsa International began a major construction project on July 6, 2015 to expand our parking garage. The project, funded through rental car fees, is expected to be completed in Fall of 2016. Once completed, it will feature a new 180,000-square-foot parking deck, including the reinforcement of the existing structure, nearly 500 new parking spots, four new vehicle ramps, three pedestrian towers with elevators and stairwells, three tensile fabric pedestrian crosswalk canopies, the remodel of two pedestrian tunnels, and new traffic signs throughout.
Parking and rental car customers will be most impacted throughout the project, and our goal is to minimize the disruption by providing information about the project as it progresses. Please continue to check this page for updates about road closures, progress photos, and more. We appreciate your patience and support throughout the construction process!

Currently, the Contractor is installing the East elevator in front of Concourse A, and planned opening is late next week. This will provide travelers access to all three levels without needing to utilize the stairs or escalators inside the airport.
On the West side of the parking garage, in front of Concourse B, the third section of the upper deck will be placed on August 26th. Crossland Construction is currently constructing the center core including the installation of the elevator. The second level of the parking garage should be open in its entirety the third week of October.
Airport and Crossland staff are continually trying to anticipate wayfinding challenges and address them with temporary signs throughout the construction process. We welcome all feedback and suggestions to make this temporary transition a smooth one.
