Terminal 1 parking lot closure as construction continues – NBC 7 San Diego


The parking lot at San Diego International Airport Terminal 1, as well as the pedestrian bridge that connects the parking lot to the terminal and the ground transportation island, will permanently close on Wednesday as a major construction project moves forward.

A new pedestrian crossing and traffic light to replace the pedestrian bridge will be activated in front of Terminal 1. Between Wednesday and July 9, SAN volunteers will be stationed outside the terminal to assist arriving passengers and at the start.

The works will make way for a new Terminal 1 parking bay due to open in late 2024, as well as a new road on the airport that will divert westbound traffic from Harbor Drive to the airport property.

Construction has begun on the new T1 which replaces the current Terminal 1,” said Kimberly Becker, president and CEO of the airport authority. “Passengers should plan ahead and expect that construction and lack of on-site parking will cause delays whether traveling to or from any of SAN’s terminals. We understand that construction may be an inconvenience, but we promise the result will be worth it.”

Passengers are encouraged to be prepared for traffic jams and delays when traveling to Terminal 1. SAN recommends passengers arrive early for their flight and exercise caution when passing through the working area. Some of the authority’s suggestions include reserving parking spaces in advance at www.san.org/Parking, using public transportation, including the free San Diego Flyer last mile shuttle, or pick-up or drop-off.

From early July, passengers can expect additional construction impacts at the terminal.
