The groundbreaking ceremony for Los Angeles International Airport’s new new $1.6 billion Midfield Satellite Concourse (MSC) took place February 27, 2017, marking another milestone in the airport’s modernisation.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and airport officials, using gold shovels, broke ground on phase one of the MSC. The five-level facility and an associated new baggage system will provide the nation’s second busiest airport with 12 new gates, a greatly enhanced guest experience, and additional flexibility to accommodate aircraft while other terminal upgrades at LAX are underway. The airport says the new construction work is taking place on the airfield and will have minimal impact on passengers. Tunnel and Gateway building construction around the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) will be phased so that no more than two TBIT gates will be closed at any time.
