LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Work was completed today at Los Angeles International Airport to demolish the pedestrian bridge connecting Terminal 6 to Parking Structure 6.
All lanes of World Way were closed for several hours oversight between Terminals 4 and 6 to allow for removal of the bridge.
“We marvel at modern engineering and the teamwork it engendered to remove this pedestrian bridge in the heart of the central terminal area, yet this is but one of many challenging construction activities in our modernization program,” said Deborah Flint, CEO of Los Angeles World Airports. “We will continue to use innovative approaches to construction projects so we can minimize impacts on guests while we safely deliver the world-class airport Los Angeles deserves.”
The project represents a new phase of the multibillion dollar transformation of LAX.
The bridge was demolished so construction can begin on a new terminal core, which will contain the elevators and escalators needed to reach the walkway to a planned Automated People Mover.
Additional closures will be take place in connection with the construction. More information is available at www.flyLAX.com.
