Skanska has started construction on LAX’s infrastructure

The Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) took the first step in upgrading the infrastructure at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) when it agreed to a $335-million contract with construction group Skanska in late 2020.

As part of the Roadways, Utilities and Enabling (RUE) project, the construction supports the next phase of LAWA’s Landside Access Modernization Project (LAMP).

LAMP’s aim is to decrease the congestion for travelers arriving at and departing from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), the second-busiest airport in the US and third-busiest hub in the world.

Skanska started construction in Q4 of 2020, and the New York-based group will tackle LAMP initiatives such as an automated people mover, a consolidated car rental facility and a new Intermodal Transportation Facility.

According to Skanska, the project’s completion is expected in Q4 2025.
