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 safety and operational management within the north airfield, new concourse and terminal facilities to upgrade passenger processing capabilities and enhance the passenger experience, and an improved system of roadways to better access the Central Terminal Area (CTA) and new facilities while reducing congestion. Airfield Improvements (North Airfield): Airfield safety and operational management would be enhanced with the westerly extension of Taxiway D and relocation and reconfiguration of runway exits from the northernmost runway. New Terminal Facilities: Concourse 0 would be a new easterly extension of Terminal 1. Terminal 9 would be a new passenger terminal located southeast of the Sepulveda Boulevard/Century Boulevard intersection. Taxiways in both the north and south airfields would be modified to provide aircraft access to Concourse 0 and Terminal 9. 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 be provided by a new station on the approved LAX Automated People Mover (APM) line with a pedestrian connection to Terminal 9. Other landside improvements associated with Terminal 9 include a pedestrian corridor between Terminals 8 and 9 that would bridge across Sepulveda Boulevard, and a parking facility.
