On Approach: A Brand New LAX Is Coming

LOS ANGELES ( — A $14 billion overhaul is about to break ground at Los Angeles International Airport, the seventh-busiest airport in the world. The LAX rebuild is the biggest public works project in LA history.

Construction starts next year and will take six years to complete.

“It is a hugely important airport, one of the busiest in the world. Yet the experience for the traveler is not up to par with what you’d expect in a global international airport,” says travel expert Brett Snyder.

That’s about to change. For the first time in 30 years, LAX terminals are being remodeled. Concourses, gates, check-in areas and baggage claim are being made over from top to bottom.

But that’s just part of the reconstruction. The biggest chunk of the project’s budget is going to build the Landside Access Modernization Project. It will include an elevated people mover more than two miles long. Passengers will be whisked to pick up and drop off spots, a metro station and a new rent-a-car facility.

More than 70 million passengers every year. Every one of them could face more hassles and delays, once construction begins.
