SANDAG proposed four airport transportation projects for the near future

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Imagine travelers from all points of San Diego County and beyond arriving at a Grand Central Station, and transferring to the airport in a tunnel or an elevated high speed people mover.

Not as big as Grand Central Station in New York, but more expansive than Union Station in Los Angeles.

KUSI’s Steve Bosh reports, the Port and SANDAG are planning transportation projects for the future. Wednesday, we heard four concepts that will be evaluated by SANDAG’s subcommittee on airport connectivity.

Bosh says the Spawar site seems to be the lead over the four sites under consideration, including the Santa Fe Depot, and Old Town.

Spawar sits on 70 acres of prime real estate, just off I-5, near the airport. The Navy has no budget to replace the existing complex, and would give up the land to get a new facility for free or reduced cost in exchange for a long-term lease.
