LAX Construction (2020 and onward)

FWIW, since I was picking up Zorak and DCAhome for the LAX meetup on Saturday (05 September 2020), took a few shots of the current state of construction from just outside Terminal 2 departures level:

Looking southeast-ish:



Due East:


Terminal 1/2 connection + whatever DL has in store...


Terminal 2, door L2-02:


Don't usually hang out in front of T2 and hadn't been back at LAX since late July (and that was at night).

Lots more construction activity going on W. 98th, the former Lot C, the former areas bounded by La Cienega (east), Century Blvd (south), Aviation (west) and Arbor Vitae (east) as well as demolition of the old Western Airlines headquarters building just south and east of the Century / Sepulveda interchange.

Also, since I found a photo from LAWA of what will be the ConRAC (Consolidated Rent-A-Car facility) (the La Cienaga/Century/Aviation/Arbor Vitae construction mentioned in post 1), I'm posting it:



(click on the photo to open in another window and then expand accordingly - this place will be big.)

LAX just won't be LAX without the miserable wait for a rental shuttle. At least the surly service can continue in the new facility. ;-)

No more shuttles. We will have a $2 billion people mover. That will surely break down on a regular basis.

Lots of interesting details about the construction and what waits for us in the future at LAX here. https://labusinessjournal.com/news/2...cess-contract/

Some details on the plans for Concourse 0 and Terminal 9

https://urbanize.la/post/lax-expansi...s-step-forward

Concourse 0 target opening date is late 2026 and construction will coincide with North airfield improvements that will begin late 2021.

Terminal 9 target opening date is late 2027. Construction will begin in 2023 which will include a new in-fill APM station, MAJOR roadway reconfigurations around LAX.

Take it with a grain of salt... I think those dates estimates were reasonable pre-COVID. Terminal 9 in particular will draw lots of lawsuits from El Segundo and others.

Keep in mind, this doesn't include the planned Terminal 4 and 5 rebuild and MSC South... in another word, LAX will be under constant construction that began with TBIT rebuild, which overlapped with T4/TBIT connector, which overlapped the current MSC North, which overlapped with T1.5 and T2/3 rebuild, which overlaps with the APM, CONRAD, and two transit centers, which will overlap with MSC South, which will overlap with T4/5 rebuild, which will overlap with T0 concourse, which will overlap with T9.

I hope they are taking advantage of covid-reduced travel and move this forward more aggressively.. if they need to close lanes, roads, parking lots without paralyzing airport operations - better do it now

They have done that. Roadway closure inside the horseshoe for T1.5, T2/3 and APM construction. Parking lot closure for AMP and ITF construction. T3 is completely closed right now to speed up construction.

MSC South is completely beyond the parameter and within the airport grounds so really has not much COVID impact. You can see plenty of activities if you drive up to LAX from Pershing side.

Wow, the only time I can ever recall a large scale construction project in LA being rushed like that was when they fixed the 10 Freeway that had collapsed in the Northridge quake. I recall the contractor was so excited about his on-time bonus he said on live TV that he was going to buy another airplane.

Cranky got a more detailed write up on what's happening at T3 and how it will look.

Drove by Aviation the other day and looks like the new rental car center and garage construction is mostly complete.

The depot for APM trains also looks complete, at least from the outside.

APM tracks construction outside the horseshoe are moving swiftly and it is about cross Century Blvd.

APM station construction inside the horseshoe is taking shape as well but seems to move slower than other parts of the project.
