A short-term parking lot with an additional 210 spaces opens Thursday at Augusta Regional Airport.

The recently completed lot was the second phase of parking improvements to accommodate growing passenger numbers at the airport. A long-term parking lot with 420 spots opened in June. All lots combined allow parking for 1,026 vehicles.

“Due to all the growth we have had, we previously were having to use overflow lots,” said Lauren Smith, a spokeswoman for the airport.

Since June, the airport’s two short-term lots have been closed. Construction continues on the rental car ready and return lot. Plans call for converting the current rental return lot into a credit card lot with 173 spaces, which could be completed next year, Smith said.

Changes to the parking plan also include a reserved lot adjacent to the main commercial terminal for no more than 30 frequent fliers. For now, a reserved parking pass through the Elite Rewards Program is available for $100 a month.

Countyman's cup is alway half full. He always gets in a good word. I really appreciate your efforts to point out the good in our county.

It seems sometimes the paper and our posters here like to make it seem as if it is just Richmond County that has all the problems, bad people, bad children, etc.

Sometimes we need to look around and see what is in our own back yard and door step before pointing so many fingers..particulary at Augusta Richmond County.
