The project at LAX will provide new roadways and utilities to relieve congestion

Skanska has signed a five-year contract with Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).

The $334.9m agreement will see that LAWA serves as the design builder for the airport authority’s roadways, utilities and enabling (RUE) project at Los Angeles International (LAX).

The RUE contract is set to relieve congestion for those travelling to and from LAX. The project focuses on constructing roadways and utilities, enabling work with the access modernisation program.

Presently, the RUE project is focusing on priority cases to provide support to the automated people mover, consolidated rent-a-car facility and intermodal transportation facility.

“The RUE builds on Skanska’s rich history of constructing impactful infrastructure projects in Los Angeles that transform transportation access, efficiency and connectivity across the city,” said Mike Aparicio, Skanska USA Executive VP.

There are currently 16 projects underway within the RUE contract, including the extension to 98th street, utility work within LAX central terminal and construction of new wayfinding signage.

The plans are expected to be completed in autumn 2025.

Skanska has worked on large-scale infrastructure projects previously, providing expanding transportation options across the region. These include the Metro purple line extension, the Metro regional connector and exposition light rail.
