The busy short-term parking garage near Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport’s south terminal is set to undergo repairs starting in April and through the summer, limiting parking that’s already in short supply.

The airport serves more than 5 million passengers a year, including many who arrive during summer’s tourist season. The short-term parking garage is heavily used by people dropping off or picking up domestic passengers.

The airport has close to 2,700 parking spots in total, with nearly half of those in the garage, according to spokeswoman Megan Peters. About 645 parking spots will be unavailable during the construction.

Once construction is completed on the top floors, Peters said, the first and second floors will close for the same repairs. The project is expected to be finished in October, she said.
