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
