LAX announces nighttime road closures as ‘People Mover’ construction goes on


Officials with the Los Angeles International Airport announced Thursday the closure of three inner traffic lanes on the arrivals level at the airport, starting Friday night. The closures, which will run from Terminal 3 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal, are part of construction for the long-awaited Automated People Mover.

Crews will be working through June 22, from 12:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m., to build the core of the train’s West Station. Arrivals level closures will last one week, while lower levels will be closed until June 22.

The crosswalk between the Bradley terminal and Parking Structure 3 and the taxi zone in that area will also be closed, with signs posted to guide pedestrians to the next available taxi zone.

One of the three inner lanes will be open in front of the international terminal, and the sidewalk between the terminals and the crosswalk between Terminal 3 and Parking Structure 3 will remain open at all times.

The people mover is scheduled for completion in 2023. When fully built, it will connect to the Crenshaw/LAX Line and Green Line rail station at Aviation and 96th Street currently under construction. Additionally, off-site parking facilities, drop-off and pick-up locations, and a rental car facility will all be within reach from the People Mover.
