SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Pile driving will get under way at Lindbergh Field Monday as part of the construction of a receiving and distribution center, which likely will produce higher noise levels than usual around the facility.
Construction crews will conduct pile driving during daytime hours over five consecutive working days, according to the Airport Authority. Crews worked to minimize any disruption by pre-drilling for the piles.
The construction work is part of project that will add a new building, a central delivery location for food, beverages and other goods to serve the airport and travelers. Once completed, the receiving and distribution center is expected to reduce traffic on the surrounding roadways by directing truck deliveries to one location, officials said.
Airport vehicles would then be used to deliver materials to terminals via on-airport roadways, which is expected to remove between 50 and 75 truck trips per day from Harbor Drive, officials said.
The 21,000 square-foot facility is expected to open in November.
