The City of Los Angeles and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has awarded a 174 million USD contact to Granite to construct new exit taxiways and reconstruct sections of existing runways at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

Under this contract, Granite will construct four new exit taxiways and rehabilitate hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavement surfacing on Runway 6L-24R.

In addition, it will reconstruct the Portland cement concrete pavement keel section of Runway 6R-24L.

This work will improve safety and operational efficiency on the airfield and extend the pavement life of both runways.

Construction will begin in January 2023 and is expected to be completed in April 2025.

Granite VP of Regional Operations, Scott McArthur said:

This project allows Granite to further enhance our quality relationship with LAWA that has been developing since 2016. We appreciate being trusted with a project that will provide increased safety and efficiency to one of the world’s busiest airports.

The project will be funded by LAWA’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) funding.
