Ford Airport adds new parking garage roof


KENTWOOD, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Gerald R. Ford International Airport has a number of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, including a new fourth level parking garage roof.

The parking deck officially opened Wednesday with a brief ribbon cutting.

Construction on the parking deck roof began in mid-March. The addition of the roof will open up 1,138 additional covered parking spaces. The garage will now accommodate 4,172 total covered parking spaces year-round.

"We all know how wonderful it is to have close, covered parking during Michigan winters," said GFIA Executive Director Brian Ryks. "We are excited to have this project complete before the busy Thanksgiving holiday, and we are happy to provide easy, convenient access for our growing passenger traffic."

The project was completed on schedule and on budget at a total of $17.3 million.
