But first, the curbsides. Eight new lanes, four for arrivals and four for departures, are expected to make their debut on the blue side of the terminal in 2022.
Tampa International kicked off a $187 million project to double the number of curbside lanes from 16 to 32 over the next five years.The project, part of the second phase of the airport's $2 billion master plan, is designed to create a new set of dedicated lanes for passengers who have only carry-on bags next to the existing curbside lanes, which will be for passengers who need to load or unload checked baggage.

The Waiting Area is designed to reduce congestion on the upper level roadway of Terminal E, where construction has taken away almost half of the curbside passenger pickup space.
Permanent and temporary signs will direct drivers to the waiting area, conveniently located on the infield parking section of Terminal E, a two-minute drive from most curbside pickup locations.
