Indianapolis airport closing off some parking

The top level of the parking garage at Indianapolis International Airport is being closed in a money-saving effort.

Officials also will block off some little-used areas of surface parking lots, saying that the decline in air traffic
during the recession has reduced the need for parking spaces at the new passenger terminal that opened in late 2008.

The airport estimates it will save at least $70,000 a year in electricity costs through reduced lighting in the closed areas.

Closing the roof level of the 5,900-space parking garage will reduce its capacity by 1,500 spots. The closures will
be phased in during the coming weeks.

Parking director Mark Currier says the airport’s facilities were designed
to accommodate future increases in passenger growth.
