Officials from Los Angeles World Airport (LAX) joined the February meeting of NCVV’s Board with a presentation of plans to modernize the airport terminals, runways and all pedestrian and vehicular access points. The Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) is a $14 billion 20+ year project that will improve traffic flow, allow for more daily arrivals and departures, and dramatically improve how passengers move between terminals as well as to and from parking and rental car facilities.
After many questions from NCVV Board members and from stakeholders in the audience, the Board voted to support the project. Construction is set to begin later this year, including projects that will consolidate car-rental facilities and customer offsite parking, new connecting/transfer points for Metro bus and rail service, and an Automated People Mover connecting the new facilities with the airport arrival/departure areas.
