HOUSTON - Construction is underway on Hobby Airport's 3,000-space, four-level parking garage. The City of Houston is funding the $52 million, 1 million-sf garage, which is slated to open in 2015 to coincide with the new international terminal.

The garage will be three times the size of the new terminal to anticipate growing traffic by 2030. To read more about the terminal, see Hobby fuels $156M, 280,000-SF international terminal.

The garage will include the following features:

• A more direct entry than the existing garage, a climate-controlled elevator lobby and a 250-foot sky bridge so drivers can avoid the weather when crossing to the terminal.
• A parking guidance system that will show open spaces using single-stall overhead LED indicators.
• Vehicular bridges between the new and existing garage on every level designed to minimize the time required to find an available space.
• Ten charging spaces for electric vehicles.
