The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners voted to award a $209 million contract for a new parking structure near the Los Angeles International Airport to Swinerton Builders.
The five-level parking structure – known as Intermodal Transportation Facility West – will have about 4,700 spaces, The Los Angeles Business Journal reported.
The project is part of the $6-billion plan to modernize road and rail access to the Los Angeles International Airport. It will connect to the $2-billion automated people-mover system now under construction, allowing passengers to park away from the congested airport terminal loop.
The structure will also contain a new concessions area, a pick-up and drop-off curb for both commercial and private vehicles, and construction of pedestrian walkways and plazas to connect the facility with the surrounding area. Two new roadways will also be built to the west and north of the structure to improve vehicle flow.
Airport officials did not disclose the number or identity of bidders for the parking structure project.
San Francisco-based Swinerton Builders expected to complete the parking structure in early 2021.
