Los Angeles International Airport Projects
The Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Master Plan represented the first major set of new facilities and improvements to the airport since 1984 in response to the growing number of passengers and amount of cargo transported through the facility.
Why does this project matter?
Since 1994, the LAX Master Plan as part of a large team of specialty consultants to implement transformative projects to improve operations and passenger service at this major airline hub.
What is ESA doing to help?
ESA prepared a substantial portion of the technical analyses to support California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance. Despite significant controversy, the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was certified in 2004 and the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Record of Decision was issued in 2005. Most recently, we were part of a large team responsible for preparation of a Specific Plan Amendment Study (SPAS) EIR that reevaluated certain components of the LAX Master Plan. The Final EIR for the SPAS was published in January 2013.
In addition to involvement in these region-defining programs, ESA has provided environmental and other specialized technical consulting on several other airport-initiated projects, including:
• South Airfield Improvement Project
• Tom Bradley International Terminal Modernization and Upgrade
• On-Call Los Angeles World Airports Air Quality Services
• In-Line Baggage Screening Systems (Terminals 1 through 8)
• Southwest Remain Overnight Apron Project
• Crossfield Taxiway Project
• LAX Central Utility Plant Replacement Project
• West Aircraft Maintenance Area Project
