Airport Construction Alert:
Temporary Wall Construction in Terminal 2
Beginning next week, construction of temporary walls will begin in the north concourse of Terminal 2. The temporary walls will allow construction crews to begin demolishing the wall between the current terminal and The Green Build terminal expansion. Construction of the walls will take place at night, between 11:30 p.m. and 4:30 a.m., to minimize impact on travelers in Terminal 2, and will last through November.
While the walls are temporary, they will be finished to look like permanent walls since they will be in place for two years, through the opening of the new terminal gates in 2013.
Pile driving for the support columns for the dual-level roadway in front of Terminal 2 is complete. Twelve of the 26 columns have been poured, and in the coming weeks, airport visitors will begin to see framework go up for the roadway and bridges.
Support columns for the future dual-level roadway are now in place at San Diego International Airport
Steel work has also begun for the building that will house the Neil Ash USO Center and Parking Management Office. The building will be located across the roadway in front of Terminal 2. When complete, the new USO will be the largest airport USO in the nation. In addition to current amenities such as a children's play room, Internet access, coffee bar, lounge and showers, military families will enjoy a new outdoor area with picnic tables and lawn areas for relaxing, as well as many other features. The new USO will serve the more than 120,000 service members and their families who travel through San Diego International Airport each year.

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
