UPDATE #3 AT 5:15 p.m. ON FRIDAY JANUARY 13, 2017
Restrooms have reopened inside Terminal 5 at LAX ending an outage caused by a hairline crack in a water main located under the curb lane in front of the terminal on the Lower/Arrivals Level. The crack was discovered just after 10:30 a.m. today.
Workers used a clamp to repair to the crack and began to fill in the excavated area in front of Terminal 5 while the water lines were flushed for 30 minutes prior to the restrooms reopening.
UPDATE #2 at 3:00 p.m. ON FRIDAY JANUARY 13, 2017
Passengers using Terminal 5 at LAX, are advised to arrive early due to a water main break that has forced shutdown of the line. The curb lane in front of Terminals 5 on the Lower/Arrival Level is closed and heavy construction equipment is being used to excavate the pavement so the water main hairline fracture can be repaired. Once completed, the pipe will be flushed before the water in Terminal 5 is turned back on.
