Massport looks like they have a pretty good plan in place to expand, upgrade and streamline the roadways around terminal B and C, plus the C canopy and curbside re-work should go a very long way to improving the situation. Only problem is we're a little over 3 years away from these projects being completed.
That's the thing, I don't believe they are doing anything at all to address the problem. They are essentially shifting a couple of lanes around terminal C. There is no expansion of the roadways in the plan except for the ones that lead to the new terminal E.
This is the problem:

The only way I see a fix to this mess is either a) demolish the garage to make room for improved roadways or b) prohibit Uber/Lyft/Taxi from entering the airport roadways. Both seem extreme but I really don't see another alternative.
