Airfield & Terminal Modernization Project
LAWA is proposing 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 primary elements, including airfield enhancements to increase efficiency and
safety within the north airfield, new terminal facilities to upgrade passenger processing capabilities and enhance the customer experience, and an improved system of roadways to better access the Central Terminal Area (CTA) and reduce congestion.
- Airfield Improvements (North Airfield). Airfield safety and efficiency would be enhanced with the westerly extension of Taxiway D and the reconfiguration of runway exits from the northernmost runway. Remote gates on the western side of the airport would be removed.
- Terminal Improvements. Concourse 0 and Terminal 9 would be constructed to replace remote gates that would be eliminated by the proposed Taxiway D westerly extension. Concourse 0 would be an 11-gate concourse facility (net increase of 9 gates) east of Terminal 1. Terminal 9 would be a new 12-gate international and domestic passenger terminal southeast of the Sepulveda/Century Boulevard intersection. Taxiways would be modified to provide aircraft access to these new facilities.
- Roadway Improvements. New arrival and departure roadways would improve access to and from the CTA. Convenient access to Terminal 9 would be provided by a new Automated People Mover (APM) station and a pedestrian bridge across Sepulveda Boulevard linking Terminals 8 and 9.
