SECURED AREA ACCESS POST PROJECT
The proposed project is for the construction of a new Secured Area Access Post (SAAP) to provide a fully functional, secured access point onto the Airport Operations Area (AOA) on the west side of LAX. A new SAAP is needed on the west side to replace SAAP 5 which has been taken out of service, and SAAP 21 which will be removed to enable other airport projects. The proposed replacement SAAP would accommodate all types of vehicles that require access to the AOA (construction, aircraft service vehicles, vendors, LAWA, etc.), and would be the prototype for any future SAAPs and/or improvements to existing SAAPs at LAX. The proposed project would only affect vehicles accessing the AOA and would not increase existing passenger capacity or the number of aircraft operations at LAX.
The project is located on the west side of LAX, parallel to and south of World Way West, west of Coast Guard Road.
Proposed Project Elements
A land footprint of approximately 1,200 feet by 150 feet, consisting primarily of paved areas with various pieces of equipment to control access (gates, traffic lights, signage, vehicle arrest systems, security fencing, etc.), and vehicle inspection equipment (license plate readers, under-vehicle scanners, etc.);
Two canopy structures spanning the width of the first and last inspection station;
Two guard station buildings (350 SF each) with monitoring equipment and a restroom facility, located at the first and last inspection station; and
Demolition and removal of the former Continental Airlines General Office Building (vacant) and associated facilities.
