Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will receive an additional $31 million in grant funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to reconstruct the terminal roadway system, the Biden-Harris administration announced on Tuesday.
The LAX Terminal Roadways Project aims to modernize the airport’s existing roadway network by reconfiguring the main entrance to the airport and constructing eight miles of roads that connect the Central Terminal Area at LAX with the rest of the airport.
This funding is in addition to the $50 million announced in July 2022, bringing the total FAA investment to $81 million.
Los Angeles World Airports CEO Justin Erbacci said the second round of funding demonstrates the commitment shared by the Biden-Harris administration, the Federal Aviation Administration, and Los Angeles World Airports in ushering in a new era at LAX.
The grants will be used to reconfigure and upgrade the local roadway system, which will greatly improve how guests get to and from the airport and are a key component of LAX’s modernization.
The LAX Terminal Roadways Project is one of the several refurbishment projects underway, with a high-speed train system and a consolidated rental car facility already under construction.
