Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has announced the completion of the Scattergood No. 2 project, a critical power utility relocation for Los Angeles International Airport’s (LAX) Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP).
The Scattergood No. 2 project was completed three weeks ahead of schedule, within budget and with zero safety incidents. It was carried out in conjunction with the LA Department of Water & Power (LADWP), and involved tunneling under a 108in (274cm) storm drain to relocate the LADWP Scattergood transmission lines along Aviation Boulevard. This relocation was integral in moving forward the future construction of the 98th Street project, which will extend 98th Street from its current endpoint at Bellanca Avenue to the 405 freeway once complete in 2023.
Upcoming utility work to support the extension of 98th Street includes the relocation of a 10in (25.4cm) gas line, communication lines and a 48in (122cm) perpendicular tunnel under Aviation Boulevard during the first quarter of 2020. A 30in (76cm) gas line also will be relocated in the second quarter of 2020.
