LAX construction project to cause traffic snarls

Repair work that had been scheduled to begin tonight on the departures level roadway at Los Angeles International Airport was put off until tomorrow due to expected rain this evening, LAX officials said.

The upper-level roadway is poised to undergo major repair work for deteriorating concrete, surface cracks and other wear-and-tear, as part of a $32.4 million project scheduled to be completed in 2016.

The road will remain in use throughout construction, but some lanes may
be closed at night, restricting and slowing traffic around the airport,
according to officials at Los Angeles World Airports, the Los Angeles city
agency that manages the facility and L.A.’s other airports.

They said passengers and motorists are advised to plan ahead and allow
more time to get to their terminals in case of traffic delays.

This phase of the project is expected to be completed just before
Thanksgiving, officials said.

LAX spokeswoman Nancy Castles noted that passengers can get dropped off
at the lower arrivals level if it does not appear busy, then take elevators or
escalators to the departure level.

Weeknight construction work on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and
Thursdays will last from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Work beginning Fridays and
Saturdays will last from 11 p.m. to 1 p.m. the next day.
