Exit from Airport Garage Rerouted; New Route Gives Drivers Access to the Exit to S. 170th Street
Drivers leaving the garage make an immediate right to enter the northbound Airport Expressway. This route gives drivers access to the exit to South 170th Street, which connects to both Air Cargo Road and International Boulevard (SR 99).
Drivers should use extra caution exiting the toll plaza, drive slowly and pay close attention to signage on the new route.
The exit ramp to Air Cargo Road on the southbound approach to the Airport terminal has closed. A new exit ramp is open on the opposite side (on the left) of the expressway, giving travelers access to the Cell Phone Waiting Lot, Overheight Parking, South 170th Street and Air Cargo Road . Drivers should pay particular attention to signage directing them to the new exit only lane on the left.
