At times of peak leisure travel, the airport’s economy parking lot fills up entirely, an airport official said. Throughout the year, the airport garage can get so full that only roof-level parking is available.
The Indianapolis International Airport has planned nearly $8 million in garage maintenance over the next two years. It's also looking into an alternative to its atrium canopy, which has collapsed twice in three years.
A Cincinnati-based company that fought a legal battle with the Indianapolis Airport Authority over construction of an off-site parking facility has acquired its largest local private competitor and plans to close its lot.
The airport's decision comes as a bipartisan group of City-County Councilors backed a resolution asking airport authority to drop its case against Midwest Logistics Partners, owner of the Ameriplex business park south of the airport.
