Airport Construction Alert: Pedestrian Bridge Demolition Begins

Demolition of the pedestrian bridge in front of the west end of Terminal 2 is under way. Work has begun on the pavilion located in the Terminal 2 parking lot, and demolition of the bridge itself will occur in early January.


Removal of the bridge is necessary for construction of a dual-level roadway as part of The Green Build expansion project. Two new pedestrian sky bridges will be constructed to connect the dual-level roadway to the terminal. They will open when the project is complete in 2013.


Travelers are reminded to plan ahead and allow extra time as it may take longer than usual to arrive, park, get to the terminal, check in and/or pick up passengers at the airport as a result of The Green Build construction.

The Green Build will bring a number of long-awaited upgrades to passengers traveling in and out of San Diego International Airport. As the largest improvement project in the airport's history, The Green Build will help meet the airport's current and future demand for travel, while improving customer service and serving as an economic stimulus for the San Diego region. Improvements include 10 new gates, a dual-level roadway in front of Terminal 2 to separate arriving and departing passengers and reduce curb front congestion, more security lanes, expanded waiting areas and more shopping and dining options. The Green Build, a $1 billion project, will create 1,000 jobs at peak construction. Travelers can expect to take advantage of the finished facilities in 2013.

The Green Build means big opportunities for local small, disadvantaged, minority or woman-owned and disabled veteran businesses in the San Diego region. Learn more and register to be kept informed of future opportunities.
