DFW Airport plans to spend $96 million on a new parking garage for Terminal E

Dallas/Fort Worth Airport plans to spend $96 million constructing a new parking garage for Terminal E as part of its terminal redevelopment program.

On Tuesday, the airport board's operations committee approved a contract for the construction of the new garage that will add another 1,600 parking spaces for Terminal E.

The full board will vote on the contract at its meeting on Thursday.

The new garage for Terminal E will cover the middle and southern sections of the terminal. The airport does not plan to tear down the northern garage section of Terminal E as it is only a little over a decade-old.

The two parking sections that the airport plans to replace currently has 2,337 parking spaces. When construction is completed on the five-level garages, the two sections will have 3,992 parking spaces.

About $4.3 million of the contract will be used on a new parking guidance system, similar to one installed in Terminal A's new parking garage that has red and green lights above occupied and open spaces.
