Spokane Airport Elevator Closed For Improvements

From Staff And Wire Reports

The Skybridge elevator at the Spokane International Airport will be grounded until June 30 because of improvements to satisfy the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The elevator is being replaced as part of a series of projects to be completed by Sept. 1. Other work includes the installation of three new elevator shafts and the modification of existing ramps.

In mid-March, a wheelchair-accessible baggage claim area was added, said Todd Woodard, manager of marketing and public relations for Spokane Airport.

While the Skybridge elevator is under construction, those needing barrier-free access can take parking garage elevators to the first floor and cross the street to the terminal building.
