Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has shared an update on the current and upcoming construction projects at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

Throughout December, work will continue on building the LAX Automated People Mover (APM) guideway over Century Boulevard, with daytime and overnight lane closures.

The APM is an electric train system that will connect three stations inside the Central Terminal Area (CTA) with three stations outside the CTA. It is anticipated that the system will be operational from 2023 to provide a free 24/7 service to significantly reduce traffic at the airport.

Construction is also taking place on the pedestrian walkways connecting Terminal 2 to the APM’s future Center Central Terminal Area (CTA) station, and Terminals 4 and 5 to the future West CTA station.

A bridge connecting Terminals 1 and 2 post security has now opened, allowing guests to use the new security screening checkpoint in the west end of Terminal 1 to access both terminals. Passengers and employees can move between the two terminals and use amenities in either without having to be rescreened.

As part of the Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP), work to connect the guideway segment over Century Boulevard is scheduled for completion in December. Through its congestion-relieving elements, the LAMP is expected to enhance the traveller experience and give customers time-certain access to terminals.

In Parking Structure 1, an electronic Smart Parking system that includes the ability to pre-book spaces, intuitive wayfinding, electric vehicle chargers, valet parking and more is now in place. Approximately 20 spaces on each level are reserved for Low-Emission Fuel Efficient Vehicles. Work to install the electronic Smart Parking system in the airport’s other parking structures may reduce available spaces this month.

Furthermore, the Airport Police Division has moved into a newly constructed facility, which will be dedicated later this month. Work to install a new traffic signal on Lincoln Boulevard to allow police vehicles to access the site at 94th Street will be scheduled in the future.
