Report recommends building a skyway above downtown San Diego

(WSP Global)

A new report recommends that San Diego add an aerial tramway to provide transportation between the San Diego International Airport, Convention Center, Seaport Village, and other downtown attractions.

The report, which cost $75,000, looked at the feasibility of a skyway (that kind of looks like the old Disneyland attraction) that would transport people to a few stops along Harbor Drive.

The tram could be built for between $230 million to $300 million and would cost between $11 million and $12 million a year to operate. It would carry up to 2,400 passengers and hour and would be the first of its kind in the United States.

Building the skyway is far from a done deal, but the city is looking to do something to ease traffic congestion in the area. Read more about the report at the LA Times.
