Airport Construction Update:
Terminal 2 Roadway Temporary Detour

Beginning at 10:30 p.m. on Friday, May 18, through Saturday, May 19, at 9 a.m., the roadway in front of Terminal 2 will be rerouted to allow for the installation of two pedestrian sky bridges.


Activity is anticipated to last one night. However, if necessary, the detour will resume on Saturday, May 19, at 11:30 p.m. through Sunday, May 20, at 9 a.m.


The two new pedestrian sky bridges will connect the dual-level roadway to the terminal. They will open when The Green Build is complete in 2013.


Pedestrian Bridge Fun Facts:

  • Each pedestrian bridge is more than 100 feet long
  • The weight of one pedestrian bridge is equal to about 48 Cessnas or one empty 787 Dreamliner
  • Installation of each bridge will take 90 minutes from the time the crane picks up the bridge
  • 100 percent of the steel for these bridges was made in the USA


Travelers are reminded to plan ahead and allow extra time as it may take longer than usual to 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.
