Los Angeles World Airport
The Taxiway T Phase II Project was a part of the LAWA Airfield Improvement Program, which has the end goal of providing Los Angeles International Airport with a dual taxilane system on the west side of the Tom Bradley International Terminal and just east of the Midfield Satellite Concourse.
Taxiway T was the final step in creating four north-south Taxi Routes for the Group VI aircrafts. This taxiway was separated into multiple phases to allow for flexibility for future construction, and efficiently manage the impacts on terminals and their tenants.
Scope of work included concrete pavement removal and replacement, base placement, PCC pavement, erosion control and drainage, underground, AOA fencing 275,000SF of new concrete pavement and marking installation, electrical construction, and modifications to the Airfield Lighting Control System (ALCS), Griffith Company performed the realignment of the north-south service road and its associated lighting, signage, striping, drainage, and paving.
Griffith Company was able to save time and money by altering the original airside work to become landside, which limited the amount of resources spent on airside security. From organizing a lay down yard with an adjacent contractor, to assisting in construction planning; Griffith Company’s collaborative attitude mitigated not only the delays in opening Taxiway T, it also saved LAWA from cost and future impacts to additional construction.
