PLAN AHEAD: Construction at Bush Airport may impact traffic and road conditions. Passengers are advised to reserve parking online in advance of arriving at the airport and build more time into their airport arrival.

Ongoing construction for terminal expansion at Bush Airport may impact traffic, mainly during afternoon peak travel times. As we work to minimize the impact on the traveling public, we ask passengers and their families to follow these important recommendations to ease traffic delays, reduce roadway congestion and enhance the passenger airport experience.

  • Arrive Early

  • Reserve Parking

  • Follow Roadway Directional Signage as construction shifts the roadways 

  • Participate in Active Loading Only along Arrivals and Departures Curbs

  • Utilize Cell Phone Lots that serve as passenger waiting areas


PLAN AHEAD: Construction is underway at Terminal E.

Here's what you need to know:

  • The Terminal E TSA Security checkpoint is closed. 
  • The Terminal D Garage is permanently closed. 
  • Terminal E departing passengers must now check-in and go through TSA security at either Terminals B, C or D. United Airlines will provide passengers with the appropriate terminal check-in location and further instructions.
