Construction of the train guideway structure for the Los Angeles International Airport Automated People Mover has been completed. The guideway will support the 2.25-mile electric train system built up to 65 ft above ground that will feature six stations–three inside the Central Terminal Area and three outside. The system will operate a maximum of nine four-car trains. The project is the centerpiece of the Los Angeles World Airports’ $4.9-billion access modernization program that is set for completion next year. Work on the guideway began in 2019, with more than 69,700 cu yd of concrete needed for its completion. The project is being built by LINXS Constructors, a joint venture composed of Fluor Corp., Balfour Beatty, Dragados USA and Flatiron Construction.
