New cell phone waiting lot opening at Lubbock airport

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Traffic jams caused by arrivals at Lubbock's Preston Smith Airport could soon be coming to an end.

A new cell phone waiting lot is now available that will let people park for free. The parking spots are located near the entrance to the Lubbock Preston Smith Airport on MLK. 

Drivers just park and wait for a call or text from the people they are picking up before heading over to the terminal.

Starting in April, Lubbock police will have officers helping direct people to the new cell phone lot.
