    Charlotte Douglas International Airport is going into the busiest stretch of the year with 4,000 fewer parking spaces than last year, and officials are warning travelers to expect congestion and look for alternate ways to get to the airport.

    The parking crunch stems from construction of a new hourly parking deck expected to be complete by November 2014. To accommodate the $120-million project, Charlotte Douglas tore down the old hourly decks that used to provide the closest parking option.

    Right now, the airport has about 22,000 parking spaces, down from more than 26,000 last year. Next year, with the opening of the hourly decks and a new business valet deck, the airport plans to have about 28,000 parking spaces.
