Construction Updates – Getting to and from PIE Airport and Terminal Improvements
Roadway Reconfigurations- Roosevelt Blvd. and UImerton Road
A major Department of Transportation (DOT) road construction project which impacts travel to and from PIE is underway as preparations are underway for the Gateway Express Project. These changes may create delays and travelers are urged to plan for the extra time needed. This reconfiguration is in preparation for the upcoming Gateway project which will build a new elevated controlled access roadway that connects U.S. 19 and the Bayside Bridge to I-275 in central Pinellas County."

Airport Cell Phone Lot Temporarily Relocated
Our cell phone lot has been temporarily relocated to a small parking lot at Fairchild Drive on Airport Parkway. Due to construction activities, the cell lot will be at this location for a few months. Look for signs to direct you to its location.
PIE Terminal Renovations
Inside the airport, renovations are underway. We are expanding our TSA checkpoints adding TSA Pre√ lanes, increasing our passenger screening. The major portion of our renovations will be in Gates 7-10 as we expand this departure area by 12,000 square feet to accommodate our passengers. With a new gate added, Gates 7-11 will have new food & beverage and news & gifts concessions, new restrooms, and a children’s play area. The project is expected to be completed in the Fall of 2018.
