Parking Infrastructure Upgrades Edmonton Airport

Edmonton International Airport (YEG) begins important infrastructure upgrades

The Departures Roadway adjacent to the YEG terminal is temporarily closing. Alternative access routes to the airport terminal will be available for passengers and visitors.

September 22, 2023 (Edmonton, AB) – Edmonton International Airport (YEG) will be completing important infrastructure upgrades to the Departures Roadway on Level Two starting on September 26, which will close the elevated roadway and require relocation of the passenger pick-up and drop-off areas.

During the construction period, the Departures Roadway adjacent to the terminal will be temporarily closed to all traffic. The lower-level Arrivals Roadway will be closed to personal vehicles and open only to commercial vehicles and passengers requiring accessible access. The relocated Passenger Pick-up & Drop-off Area has been established east of the Easy Parkade, and a new Park & Wait Area is available for those picking up arriving passengers.

Passengers being picked up or dropped off from the relocated Passenger Pick-up & Drop-off Area will now have a 5-10 minute walk to and from the terminal, with seasonal shuttle service and heated shelters available from November until April.

Passengers are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes earlier than usual and follow directional signage to navigate these changes. The safety and security of passengers, employees and guests are always 2 top priorities, and YEG appreciates your patience as these important enhancements are being made to our region’s airport.

This is a temporary regenerative construction project, and due to the extent of the upgrades needed, this closure will be longer than typical maintenance. We are working with our partners to carefully minimize the overall project duration, and construction will continue into 2024. Edmonton based PCL Construction will be completing the work, and the engineering will be managed by WSP.
