The Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Airfield and Terminal Modernization Project will focus on airfield and terminal improvements that stay within the airport’s existing footprint, and landside (roadway) improvements that help reduce local traffic congestion. The Project would elevate the passenger experience, improve the community experience, enhance airfield safety and increase business opportunities.
