LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Construction began Monday on the new façade for the Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport.
The departure level curbside drop-off lane will be shut down between the International Terminal and Terminal 4.
The construction is part of the initial phases of a $23.5 million project that will replace glass canopies in front of the terminal, KNX 1070′s John Brooks reports.
The new façade will match the design of the new International Terminal that is currently under construction, officials said.
The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2013 and will include energy-efficient lighting, new signage and outdoor escalators.
