Construction has started for a new parking ramp at the Sioux Falls Regional Airport.

“We understand the growth of the city and the need for the airport to meet those needs of a growing community,” said Airport Executive Director Dan Letellier at the April 12 groundbreaking event.

The four-level ramp will add nearly 1,000 covered parking spaces. The first level will feature only short-term parking, while levels two through four will be designated for long-term airport parking.

The ramp will be built on the site of the former short-term parking lot. When complete, the airport will have 3,865 total parking spots. A skywalk will connect the second level of the parking ramp to the terminal building.

TSP is providing architecture, interior design, mechanical and electrical engineering, and a portion of the structural engineering services for the project. KLJ is responsible for project management and civil engineering, and Kimley-Horn is the parking and structural consultant.

Construction on the $63 million project is scheduled to continue until the fall of 2024.
