LAX Plans For Future

Los Angeles World Airports released a 24 year plan that calls for improved roadways and transportation to and from the department's Palmdale and Ontario Airport and decentralizing operations at LAX. This in anticipation of future growth and the need to reduce traffic at LAX.

Mark Pisano, executive director of the Southern California Association of Governments, told the Airport Commission today. ``We've been working on to provide high speed access to the airport, and the immediate, short term plans could be several billion dollars,'' Pisano said. ``But the longer term systems to improve Interstate 10 to Ontario and Highway 14 to Palmdale could cost upward to $15 billion.''

More immediate efforts include adding carpool lanes on the 405 Freeway and off-ramp improvements on the 105. Additionally, LAWA approvved plans today to begin service of its popular FlyAway bus service from Union Station in Downtown LA to LAX.

I hope, if they're planning to build a terminal at the western edge of the airport, that an underground people mover is part of the equation.

Terminal at Western edge??? I think not! If the Mayor's office thought Westchester was opposed before wait til they see the reaction they would get to that proposal!

and then there is Palmdale. The City wouldn't continue to subsidize the one lonely airlines sticking it out - because they overspent their budget on overtime instead of assigning one person there. Now that the airline is gone they finally assigned someone and is paying that person almost $90K to watch the tumbleweeds.
