Airport Construction Update:The Green Build Construction Reaches Halfway Point

Construction is 50 percent complete on The Green Build, the largest project in the history of San Diego International Airport. The project is on schedule and within budget, moving toward a summer 2013 opening date.


Construction crews are hard at work on the dual-level roadway, which will relieve curb front congestion in front of Terminal 2 when complete. Concrete decks have been poured, and in the coming months, two new pedestrian bridges will be installed, reaching from the roadway to the terminal.


Work is ongoing inside the new terminal expansion as well, as crews build out the interior space into gate waiting areas, bathrooms, concessions areas and storage rooms. The terminal's exterior finishes are also currently being installed.


Key upcoming project milestones include:

  • Summer 2012: Peak construction; 1,000 workers will be on the site
  • Fall 2012: Terminal 2 parking reopens (700 spaces)
  • January 2013: USO construction complete
  • Summer 2013: Grand opening



Construction of the dual-level roadway is on schedule and on budget

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.
