Document Description
LAWA proposes to Implement the LAX Airfield and Terminal Modernization Project ("project") as part of LAWA's continuing commitment to maintain LAX as a world-class airport. The project consists of several elements, Including airfield improvements to enhance efficiency and safety within the north airfield, new terminal facilities to upgrade passenger processing capabilities and enhance the customer experience, and an improved system of roadways to better access the Central Terminal Area (CTA) and reduce congestion, Airfield Improvements (North Airfield): Westerly extension of Taxiway D and reconfiguration of runway exits from the northernmost runway, Remote gates on the western side of the airport would be removed, New Terminal Facilities: Concourse O would be an 11-gate concourse (net increase of 9 gates) east of Terminal 1. Terminal 9 would be a 12-gate International/domestic passenger terminal southeast of the Sepulveda Boulevard/Century Boulevard intersection, Concourse O and Terminal 9 would replace remote gates eliminated by the proposed Taxiway D extension, Taxiways would be modified to provide aircraft access to these new facilities, Roadway Improvements: New arrival and departure roadways would improve access to and from the CTA and would provide access to the new Terminal 9 facility, Access to Terminal 9 would also be provided by a new Automated People Mover (APM) station and a pedestrian bridge across Sepulveda Boulevard linking Terminals 8 and 9.
