Parking at the world's busiest airport is about to get even tighter, when Hartsfield-Jackson International closes more than 1,000 parking spaces to make room for construction.

The Atlanta airport is building five new gates on the north end of Concourse T, and is clearing facilities from the area to make room.

As a result, the airport will eliminate nearly 700 parking spaces in its North Economy parking lot as of Wednesday, May 1. More than 350 additional spaces will close May 15.

The North Economy lot will remain open, but will have only about 400 spaces left.

That means if you typically park in the North Economy lot, you may need to look for other parking options.

Hartsfield-Jackson said South Economy, West Economy, North Daily and South Daily parking will remain open. There are also Park-Ride lots A and C, and the International terminal Park-Ride deck. The airport's parking website has information on parking lot status.

Off-airport parking lots are another option. There are more than 10 different off-airport lots near Hartsfield-Jackson. You can see a list of the options on the airport's ground transportation web page, or take Camp Creek Parkway to reach many of the lots near the domestic terminal.
