Los Angeles County Airport Projects Are Crucial For Modernizing Infrastructure In Southern California.
Los Angeles International Airport is in the midst of a major capital investment program that includes significant work on both the airfield side (terminals, runways, maintenance facilities) and the land side (LAMP and Northside Plan Update). Los Angeles County Airport Projects at LAX will expand the international terminal, remodel other terminals, add new domestic concourses, finish up runway work, introduce more efficient security checkpoints, install new baggage carousels, consolidate rental car facilities, build new parking structures and connect the airport to L.A. Metro’s growing light rail network.
In Burbank, a new 355,000-square-foot replacement terminal to be built with up to 6,637 parking spaces. The new terminal is needed to meet current Federal Aviation Administration safety standards regarding runway distance to buildings.
Burbank residents approved a measure to replace the current, 90-year-old, terminal with a 14-gate Hollywood Burbank Airport. Construction is set to begin in 2021, with the goal of completing the new terminal by 2024.
“There is no calling card like it to people who will invest, who will travel, who will study in your city than an airport,” says Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
