The Ottawa International Airport is going to be just a little more accessible soon.
In a $35-million project that breaks ground this week, the airport is going to be adding 850 new parking spaces and new features, including a wayfinding system, new signage, an extra ramp for access, a new entrance plaza, an enclosed roof, and the possibility to expand for another 750 parking spaces in the future.
The project is expected to be completed by late fall 2011.
“Growing demand confirms that the local economy is in good health, and as more people fly, we will able to serve their parking needs,” said Peter Vice, chairman of the Airport Authority’s board of directors.
