The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners has approved the advertisement of a request for proposals (RFP) for preparation works for the US$5.5bn Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in California.
The RFP is intended to solicit qualified firms to submit proposals to provide comprehensive engineering, design, demolition, pre-construction, and construction services for the LAMP Utilities and Enabling Project.
The primary aims of LAMP is to relieve traffic congestion within the LAX Central Terminal Area (CTA) and on surrounding streets; provide connection to the regional Metro light-rail system; and reduce vehicle emissions and improve air quality for communities adjacent to the airport.
The LAMP Utilities and Enabling Project will ensure that key sites are cleared and prepared ready for the consortium construction teams to begin work on time. It will also help to minimize change orders from automated people mover (APM) contractors and will provide flexibility and agility to mitigate negative impacts on traffic and parking created by the LAMP.
Construction will not commence until final environmental approval is obtained. The RFP will be posted on the Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network (LABAVN) next week.
