Groundbreaking on new rental car center at Lindbergh Field

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Groundbreaking took place Tuesday on a new rental car center at Lindbergh Field.

The new facility, located on the north side of the airport, will house all of the rental car companies that operate at the airport.

The new location will help reduce traffic on Harbor Drive as well as limit the shuttle buses circling the airport.

"One of the most exciting parts of this program is its environmental benefits. We'll be operating one shuttle that will operate from all the terminals along Harbor Drive, then on airport property, avoiding the intersection of Laurel and Pacific Highway and traveling straight to this rental car center. It will reduce traffic on harbor drive by up to 15 percent," Robert H. Gleason of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority said.

The $316 million project is scheduled to open in early 2016.
