"Barring unforeseen delays, Bradley West will be finishing up around the same time that I do," said Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who is serving his second and final four-year term.

"Nothing will make me prouder than to stand here once again in 2013 at the grand opening of this project, a project that helped to revive the city's future and change the way the world thinks about visiting L.A."


With the alteration being carried out to the concourse would this eliminate aircraft having to stop on the taxi way and being towed to their allocated bays???

Right now arrival at TBIT is definitely on the lower level. Changing that doesn't make any sense.

No, the upper floor arrivals is correct. It doesn't mean the arrivals greeting hall will be on the upper floor. Passengers coming off the jetway will take the escalators up and across the terminal before going down the escalators back down. It's really common amongst many airports (examples: YVR, PEK)

See the renderings provided on the first page.

Arrival on the upper floor also provides a more dramatic entrance for arriving visitors, so they can see the bright and spacious grand new hall right away. After they walk past the grand hall, they will take escalator down to ground level luggage claim area. I prefer this design to the one we have right now in which you have to walk through a narrow path with low ceiling and no windows on the concrete wall.

From LAX Press:

The following four photographs show how the new Bradley West facility will look upon completion. All gates will not open and be operational at the same time. Each photograph shows the key milestones for operation of the various concourses and gates.

The first milestone, September 2012, will open the first gate on the north concourse for and Aircraft Design Group (ADG) VI gate. This will allow for a “soft start” and an opportunity to commence minimal operations and ensure everything isin working order for full operations.



Then the next major milestone, which is the key milestone for the entire project is 12/12/12. This is the date for the opening of all the west side gates and the central core, including the new concession mall. At this point the east side gates are not yet operational, and routing of passengers into the new central core will be through the existing security check points until the final security check point on the mezzanine is constructed and becomes operational.



The next step following the 12/12/12 opening will be the demolition of the existing south concourse to allow completion of the east apron for the new south concourse. The south concourse east gates are anticipated to become operational in August of 2013.



Demolition of the north concourse will follow the demolition of the south concourse, clearing the way for the final construction and opening of all gates. The east side of the north concourse is scheduled to open in December of 2013.

Will the reconstructed Tom Bradley International Terminal lead to further redevelopment at LAX or will the other terminals remain the way they are currently? Six terminals opened in 1962, another two opened during the 80s.

And is that arch bridge structure at TBIT still gonna be constructed? I mean, what if certain aircraft are too tall to pass under the bridge?

I am not certain, but I believe plans to replace the older domestic terminals are on hold due to the economy. Some of the plans presented in the mid-2000's were quite ambitious, I doubt any of those will come to fruition in this decade, but we shall see.
