AIRPORT COMMISSIONERS APPROVE FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT FOR LAX LANDSIDE ACCESS MODERNIZATION PROGRAM


http://lawa.org/newsLAWA.aspx




(Los Angeles, California – March 2, 2017) The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) today certified the Final Environmental Impact Report (Final EIR) for Los Angeles World Airports’ (LAWA’s) proposed Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and recommended that the Los Angeles City Council concur and approve the LAMP Project.

“The Final EIR represents the culmination of years of planning by LAWA staff and extensive outreach with our neighbors, the airport community and the general public to develop a comprehensive program that will modernize LAX,” said BOAC President Sean Burton. “We’re proud of everyone’s collective efforts, and we’re excited to enter the next phases of the LAMP Project.”

“The Landside Access Modernization Program would provide certainty, and bring LAX into the modern era for the modern traveler - to ensure that LA is a global gateway,” said LAWA Chief Executive Officer Deborah Flint. “The board’s approval of the final LAMP EIR marks an important milestone and is affirmation that a program designed to improve access to LAX and connect to public transit, would change how our guests and neighbors interact with the airport in many positive ways.”

Today’s meeting included a public hearing, which drew a large crowd in support of the LAMP project. "Today the airport experience is more critical and impactful for business and vacation travel than ever before," said Joseph Czyzyk, chairman and chief executive officer of Mercury Air Group, a LAX tenant. "From passenger experience improvements to connecting mass transit into our airport, and thereby making our roadways better - there is much to applaud with LAMP."

"Loyola Marymount University supports LAX's proposed Landside Access Modernization Program," said Andrew O'Reilly, director of community relations, Loyola Marymount University. "As an LAX neighbor, we are impacted by and aware of airport operations, and we are confident that the proposed updates and improvements are critical to the value of the airport and surrounding areas."

"The project will strengthen the region's economic standing and promote business growth throughout Southern California," said Sarah Golden with the Valley Industry and Commerce Association. "Our local businesses rely on LAX to provide a connection to domestic and foreign markets around the world - VICA is proud to support the Landside Access Modernization Program."

LAMP would reduce vehicle emissions and improve air quality for communities adjacent to LAX and would transform LAX into a modern, state-of-the-art airport servicing passengers, employees and neighbors.

LAMP consists of several primary components: an Automated People Mover (APM) system with six stations that would transport passengers between the CTA and the other main project components located east of the CTA. These other components include a Consolidated Rent-A-Car Facility (ConRAC) and two new Intermodal Transportation Facilities, which include public parking and passenger drop-off and pick-up areas. To provide access to the Metro regional rail system, the APM system would include a station at the Intermodal Transit Facility where it interfaces with Metro’s Airport Metro Connector station at 96th Street/Aviation Boulevard. In addition to the major components listed, LAMP would also include planned roadway improvements throughout the LAX area.

LAWA prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) for LAMP in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), which was released on September 15, 2016. The official comment period for the Draft EIR ran from September 15 through November 15, 2016. Two public meetings were held in October 2016 that allowed the public to learn about LAMP and its components, with attendees able to submit comments following presentations from LAWA staff and consultants.

Anticipate more than the usual delays, traffic, and wait time. With all the rennovations and construction going on at LAX, this is going to be painful for many travelers at the beginning of summer peak time travels.

Just spitballing here, but perhaps they haven't been able to relocate the services that are using the building that currently sits on the site of the future gates, and they have to build that new replacement facility first before they can begin construction on the rest of the gates.

AA's "superbay" hangar occupies the southern part of the midfield satellite concourse site. The airport is still working with AA to determine if/where a suitable replacement hangar can be built. Until then, the southern part of the MSC will have to wait.

Space is tight at LAX, so we might be waiting awhile. With United vacating the old Continental hangar on World Way West, that's probably the best hope.

Right, they have wait for a while. Once the old Continental hangar to be demolished and they will start construction MSC extension. They can have more gate space. They won't have wait for any much longer.
