Starting Monday, the parking lot in front of Terminal 2 at Lindbergh Field will be temporarily closed off to the public for two years and all spots will be relocated to a new, temporary, lot off McCain Road.
The cause? To help sooth the traffic woes of travelers the airport is building a the dual-level roadway in front of the terminal, in order to reduce the congestion on the terminals front curb by separating arriving and departing passengers, according to a press release.
Passengers are being asked to try a new temporary lot if they're traveling out of Terminal 2, which boasts 1,350 parking spaces at $12/day with free shuttle rides to the terminals.
Besides the temporary lot, travelers can try the lots at Terminal 1, the Commuter Terminal or three other parking lots, including SAN Park Pacific Highway which is only $11 a day and also offers free shuttles.
Current plans call for portions of the original lot to reopen in late 2012; the full lot will reopen when construction is complete in 2013, according to the press release.
