New exit plaza open at MSP

Aug 16, 2017

A new exit plaza for cars departing parking ramps at Terminal 1-Lindbergh at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport opened last weekend.

The new exit plaza and pay stations are located closer to Hwy. 5 than the previous exit plaza, which will be razed  to make room for a new 5,000-car parking ramp. 

A video of a drive through the new exit plaza can be seen by clicking on the image below. 


After leaving the exit plaza drivers make a series of right turns to join the outbound roadway. 

That roadway leads past the Post Office and the new hotel, which is still under construction. The new roadway replaces two tight corners with mild bends that should improve the flow of traffic. 

A ground-breaking for the new parking ramp is scheduled for this fall.
