Roadway and Transit Impacts near LAX:

Terminal Construction/Renovation

Terminal 1: Phase 3 of Southwest Airlines’ $515-million Terminal 1 Renovation Project is taking place in the central part of the terminal. New restrooms are open on the concourse, just past the Security Screening Check Point, between Gates 9 and 10. Passengers reach the checkpoint via a new section of the hallway. Temporary all-gender restrooms are available on the west side of the ticketing lobby, and guests may also use restrooms located on the Lower/Arrivals Level or in the terminal past the Security Screening Check Point. The food court in the south end of the terminal is closed, with guests directed to establishments further north in Terminal 1. Westfield is phasing in new concessions later this year. Renovation work in the area of the escalators will take place overnight, with arriving passengers directed to the escalators in the Security Screening Check Point after 11 p.m. nightly. Gate 10 has permanently closed in preparation for construction of Terminal 1.5. Gates 12A and 14 are temporarily closed for renovations. The pedestrian bridge connecting Parking Structure 1 and the terminal is closed, with signs placed to direct passengers.

Tom Bradley International Terminal (B/TBIT): Gate 131 is closed for construction of improvements to the baggage handling facility, and Gate 132 is closed for work related to the Midfield Satellite Concourse. Passengers using Terminals 4-8 are able to access shops and restaurants in Terminal B/TBIT without having to clear security a second time by using the Terminal 4 Connector. Two more Automated Screening Lanes have opened, bringing the total to 12 of the upgraded lanes in the Security Screening Check Point. The lanes are expected to process approximately 30 percent more passengers per hour than the standard equipment they replace. The final two lanes are expected to open by early April.

Terminals 7/8: United Airlines is continuing its $578-million Terminal 7/8 Renovation Project scheduled for completion this summer. All of the gate areas in Terminal 7 have been renovated. Skycaps will be moving to new podiums in front of Terminal 7. The carpet in the connector between Terminals 6 and 7 will be replaced with a new terrazzo floor. Gate 86 B (old Gate 88) has reopened, with work continuing on Gates 84, 85 and 86A. The men’s restroom near Gate 83 is closed for renovations, with customers directed to restrooms near Gates 81 and 86B. A new water bottle filler is available near Gate 83.
