The closure of Lower Arrivals Drive begins at midnight every night beginning Monday and lasts until 7 a.m
SEATAC, Wash. — Lower Arrivals Drive at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) will close overnight this week to allow crews to demolish an unused ramp as part of a project to improve transit.
The complete closure of Lower Arrivals Drive begins at midnight every night beginning Monday and lasts until 7 a.m. The project is expected to be completed by 7 a.m. Thursday. A one-lane closure will continue until 8:30 a.m. daily.
According to SEA, traffic will be diverted to Upper Departures Drive and drivers should expect additional traffic congestion.
During closure hours, support vehicles such as hotel and valet shuttles will be relocated to the northeast ground transportation parking lot on the first floor of the airport parking garage, according to SEA.
Single lane closures will continue Thursday through Saturday, October 1, nightly from midnight to 8:30 a.m. near the Lower Arrivals Drive entrance.

The closures mark the final phase of the ramp demolition project. The demolition of the ramp is part of future work to reduce congestion and queues, according to SEA. Crews will eventually add additional lanes for more direct access to parking lots, taxis, and more transit improvements. Work is scheduled to begin in mid to late 2023.
SEA is asking drivers to pay attention to directional signs and said staff will be available in and around the terminal to provide assistance.
