George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) will soon close one of its Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Checkpoints. The closing site is located inside a bridge structure which serves as a connector between the Terminal C facility and its nearby parking garage. The checkpoint will permanently close at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 13, 2013 in order to utilize TSA teams more efficiently at the other seven checkpoint locations at IAH.

The closure is not expected to have a significant impact on airport operations, since it is only operational on a part-time basis.

Passengers looking to use the checkpoint in the future will be directed by signage to the Terminal C ticketing level, where TSA screening can take place at an operational checkpoint.

After the checkpoint is de-commissioned, the bridge will only be accessible to those passengers exiting Terminal E. The exit will be closed after hours, closing nightly at approximately 9:00 p.m.

Effective July 14, 2013, the TSA checkpoint operation locations and scheduled hours will be:
