Airport Construction


Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) has embarked upon an ambitious transformation—an endeavor for Pittsburgh, by Pittsburgh. The Terminal Modernization Program will deliver a more efficient passenger experience and real opportunity for the region, reshaping the future by reflecting and serving the community, inspiring industry, and enriching travel. Whether a resident of the Pittsburgh area, a visitor, or simply a traveler en route to another destination, a new Pittsburgh International Airport awaits you in 2025.

An Airport Built for Pittsburgh, by Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh International Airport is building the future of travel in Western Pennsylvania, and the men and women on the construction project are committed to the region, just as the region is committed to them.

Built For Pittsburgh, By Pittsburgh shares the stories of the people—our community members, friends and family—that continue to build the area and what the Terminal Modernization Program means to them.

In the meantime, to arrive at the airport and get to your gate on time, please be aware of the following construction:

Airport Roads

You will encounter new traffic patterns and temporary lane closures at Pittsburgh International Airport. Allow extra time to arrive, drive carefully, and pay close attention to directional signage. The three entrance lanes that lead to the terminal have been reduced to two, so please use caution as you exit I-376 and I-576 to arrive at the airport.

Watch our wayfinding video to learn more.

Scaffolding in the Airside Terminal

We are building a bridge to connect the new terminal with the existing airside terminal. To do so, we have placed scaffolding in the Airside Terminal above the escalators leading to and from the automated people mover train. Passage through the terminal’s center core will be restricted to arriving passengers only. Wayfinding signage will direct you to gates, restrooms, restaurants, and other amenities. Escalators and elevators will remain operational during construction.


Other steps you can take to ensure you arrive at your gate with time to spare include:

Reserve Parking in Advance

Through Reserved Parking you can get exclusive upgrades, and guarantee a spot in your preferred lot.

The PIT parking system is easy to use. When you reserve your parking, you will receive a QR code via email. When you arrive at PIT, scan this QR code at the gate upon entry to the lot where you reserved a space. Use the same QR code when you depart after the conclusion of your trip.
