Construction Starts on New San Diego Airport 3K-Space Parking Plaza

Crews broke ground on Wednesday on a large-scale project to bring about 3,000 parking spaces to the San Diego International Airport.

Construction started on the airport’s new $127.8 million “Parking Plaza,” an area that will eventually include 2,901 “close-in” parking spaces – spots that are within walking distance to Terminal 2 when the parking structure opens to the public in summer 2018.

The Parking Plaza will span 1 million square feet across three levels. It will increase the net parking in the area by about 1,800 stalls. Of the 3,000 spaces, 1,740 will be covered parking – the first time Lindbergh Field has had covered spaces.

The plaza will also include seven glass-back elevators so riders can see out of the cab and people can see in, creating a safer experience for those taking the elevator.

Construction of the Parking Plaza will last approximately 21 months.

During this time, technology experts will also be developing a smartphone app that will eventually help customers who park in the plaza reserve, locate and pay for parking spaces via their mobile devices.

While Terminal 2 parking area is shut down, Bolton said travelers should use the Airport’s new website, UpgradeYourParking, to reserve parking spots prior to heading to Lindbergh Field.
