Terminal Parking Garage Expansion

The high volume of motorists driving to Midway makes the parking garage expansion one of the critical projects in the program. It also offers opportunities to improve traffic flow in and around Midway. To better accommodate travelers, the MMP adds 1,500 new parking spaces close to the terminal building by expanding the existing terminal parking garage to the east over the CTA maintenance yard. This project will also enhance the entrance from Cicero Avenue to the garage as well as improve transit access from the CTA Orange Line with an upgraded pedestrian walkway.
