SALT LAKE CITY — The section of the Salt Lake City International Airport closed after a water leak, is now open again. The tunnel that connects the A and B concourses was closed after it flooded.

Passenger traffic resumed shortly after 6 p.m. on Monday. 

Previously, in an email, the airport stated: “A bus bridge to transport passengers who need special assistance has been coordinated, otherwise passengers are using a utility corridor to avoid the water.”

In a social media post, the airport says they are working on the issue. There is no information at this time on the cause of the water leak. 

The airport is experiencing a ground water leak in the tunnel connecting concourses A and B. We are working to address the issue as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
