Take Off at JFK and Newark International Airports

The steel framed parking garages constructed and planned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey are a significant part of the multibillion dollar capital redevelopment programs at JFK International Airport in Queens, NY, and at Newark International Airport, NJ. The recently constructed 1,800 parking space Green Garage at JFK International Airport and the 3,300 parking space Lot E Garage under construction at Newark International Airport, designed and constructed by the Port Authority, meet the dramatic increases in passengers at the airports.

Both garage structures use steel frames with precast double tee concrete
floor systems selected for economy, appearance and the ability to meet tight design and construction schedules. Both structures also use architecturally exposed painted structural steel and double-threaded steel framed helices for entrance/exit ramps. The Port Authority of New York
and New Jersey chose steel because of the lower life-cycle costs involved.
The Green Garage at JFK International will be integral with the new AirTrain JFK light rail system stations at Terminals 1 and 3, while the Lot E Garage at Newark International will tie in to the existing Air Train Newark system station.
