Jacksonville airport will add parking as terminal expands

Jacksonville Daily Record
Jacksonville International Airport is planning a third parking garage.

The Jacksonville Aviation Authority board took steps Jan. 23 toward constructing an estimated $100 million parking garage and to expand the security checkpoints at Jacksonville International Airport.

The board voted 6-0 for a $10 million budget transfer to design a third parking garage that would add about 2,000 spaces. The facility, envisioned as six levels, is designed next to the existing daily garage and projected to cost about $100 million. It would completed by the fourth quarter of 2024 or first quarter of 2025.

It also unanimously ratified a $15 million award for continued work on the checkpoint renovation at the airport. JAA’s awards committee voted Dec. 19 to award the contract.
