While many continue to work from home, LAX has continued construction on its $5.5-billion Landside Access Modernization Program, which includes an automated people mover train system, a consolidated rent-a-car (CONRAC) facility, two intermodal transportation facilities (ITF), and roadway improvements.
LAX CONRAC partners completed several milestones this spring. March activities included the first concrete footings pour for the quick turn around (QTA) building, which will house light vehicle maintenance such as oil changes, car washes, and refueling.
In April, four tower cranes were erected to help with some of the very heavy lifting on the project. At the end of May, the first slab-on-grade pour also took place at the QTA building.
Still to come in June is the first suspended slabs (or upper levels) pours for the QTA. In July, the first slab-on-grade pour for the ready return/idle storage building, which is the primary location for the rental cars.
In August, the first suspended slabs for the RR/IS will be constructed.
By the end of the year, LAX expects three additional tower cranes to go up to assist with construction.
