San Diego International Airport officials provided an update on the construction of the new Terminal 1 earlier this week. Crews have begun the demolition process of the existing terminal and other structures in the area to make room for the new terminal building.
Officials said the terminal will expand the airport to more than 60 gates and give travelers a seamless and enjoyable experience with plenty of options for shopping and dining. The airport’s authority officially broke ground nearly two years ago.
Earlier this month, the Biden Administration awarded the airport with $20 million in funds to support the construction of the new terminal 1. Later this year, airport officials expect a new administration building to open, while the new parking plaza is scheduled to open in late 2024. Along with the parking plaza, improvements will be added to the airport’s roadways system, making it easier for all vehicular, bus, bike, and pedestrian traffic to enter and exit the airport.
