The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, the agency that manages Lindbergh Field, released a final environmental impact report April 18 for an expansion and renovation project.
The report, which can be accessed online at www.sanplan.com or through a CD-ROM copy obtained at the agency’s offices at the Lindbergh Field Commuter Terminal, includes the agency’s responses to public comments to a draft release of the report last year.
The project includes expanding Terminal 2 by 10 gates to bring the number of gates at the airport to 51; construction of an overnight parking area for jets; construction of a multistory parking garage at Terminal 2 that includes an elevated roadway; and local road improvements. The estimated cost for the project is $700 million.
The airport authority’s board is scheduled to certify the report May 1.
