Gas Line Break Shuts Down Gas, Water Service at San Diego Airport's Terminal 2 West

A construction worker was digging at a site in Terminal 2 West when he struck and broke a gas line just before 9:30 a.m. Tuesday

Gas and hot water service were shut down Tuesday morning in Terminal 2 West at the San Diego International Airport after a construction incident impacted a gas line, airport officials said.

Jonathan Heller, a spokesperson for the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, said a construction worker at the Federal Inspection Station site in Terminal 2 West struck a gas line while digging at around 9:25 a.m., rupturing it.

Heller said gas service to Terminal 2 West was shut down; there was no hot water or gas service. He said concession vendors were offering a limited menu due to the impacted services.

As of 10:30 a.m., it was unknown how long the service shut-offs would last. Heller said San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) crews were on site efforting repairs.

San Diego Fire-Rescue Department (SDFD) crews were also at the airport taking a look at the broken gas line but, as of 11:35 a.m., those crews had cleared.

The roadway outside Terminal 2 West was shut down for a bit after the gas line was hit, but Heller said it reopened a short time later. No one was injured.

By 2 p.m., the San Diego Airport Authority confirmed the gas line had been repaired and gas service had been restored at Terminal 2 West.
