Public Review Period Begins For Mitigated Negative Declaration, Study For Proposed Terminal 1.5 At Los Angeles International Airport

Published on : Saturday, July 23, 2016

Los Angeles World AirportsLos Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has issued a Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the proposed Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Terminal 1.5 Project.

 

 

The proposed project would construct a structure between Terminals 1 and 2 at LAX to improve existing passenger processing capabilities, improve passenger quality of service, and provide additional space to help meet federal security requirements.  The proposed project would include passenger and baggage screening, ticketing, and baggage claim facilities in support of existing operations within Terminals 1 and 2; a secure passenger connection (i.e., enclosed/controlled corridor) between existing Terminals 1 and 2; and office and support space.

 

 

The project site is located within the LAX Central Terminal Area.  LAX is situated within the City of Los Angeles, an incorporated city within Los Angeles County.   The project site is in the northern portion of the CTA, west of Sepulveda Boulevard and Sky Way, north of World Way, east of the Tom Bradley International Terminal, and south of the LAX north airfield complex.

 

 

Pursuant to the State of California Public Resources Code Article 6 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), as amended, the City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles World Airports has prepared an Initial Study for the project. Under CEQA, the City finds that, with the incorporation of described mitigation measures, there is no substantial evidence that the proposed project would have a significant effect on the environment and proposes to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration.

 

 

The proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration and Initial Study for the proposed project will be available for a 20-day review period beginning July 21, 2016, and may be viewed on the LAWA under “Current Projects.”
