St. Louis - The Terminal 1 (T1) Parking Garage entrance at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport reopens after construction on the Lambert International Boulevard (LIB) bridge required its closure. Work on the westbound LIB lanes has been completed and drivers can once again access the T1 Parking Garage through its main entrance.
Since late July, traffic was detoured around the work zone on the westbound LIB lanes, requiring the T1 Parking Garage entrance to be briefly relocated to the exit plaza of the garage via an interim entry lane on Departing Flights Drive.
The temporary height restriction for oversized vehicles traveling under the LIB bridge on Air Flight Drive has also been lifted, as the construction phase requiring scaffolding under the bridge is now complete. Detours are no longer required for large vehicles needing Terminal 1 access.
Work is still ongoing for the eastbound lanes of the LIB bridge. Drivers will likely see signs of road construction through November and may encounter minor rerouting around work zones until the project’s completion in early December.
The LIB bridge was built in the 1960’s and repairs and maintenance are required to extend the lifespan of the structure. The restoration includes replacing bridge bearings, patching concrete, resurfacing the bridge deck and resurfacing the approaching sections of the roadway that connect to the bridge.
