Tampa airport will demolish garage
August 14, 2019 - The old Red Side Rental Car Garage at Tampa International Airport will be demolished next week. The demolition, at 2 a.m. on Aug. 20, will complete a months-long process to remove the structure. To ensure a safe implosion, the airport will close to all guests, tenants and employees between 1 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 20. All inbound traffic will be blocked and any unauthorized individuals on site during this time may be trespassed. The demolition of the old rental car garage is part of phase 2 of the airport's master plan.
