Fluor Corporation announced that its LAX Integrated Express Solutions (LINXS) joint venture team broke ground Thursday on the Los Angeles International Airport’s (LAX) Automated People Mover project for Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA). Fluor and its partners are set to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the $4.9 billion project over the next 30 years. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2023.

“We are eager to officially begin the construction and advancement of LAX’s world-class facilities,” said Terence Easton, president of Fluor’s infrastructure business. “This project is a signature piece of mega infrastructure that will be ready to welcome the 2028 Summer Olympics, will improve mobility for travelers from around the world and empower progress for the Los Angeles region for generations to come.”

The project includes building six stations along a 2.25-mile guideway where driverless vehicles will arrive to transport passengers every two minutes during peak periods. This new line will offer ridership capacity of up to 10,000 passengers per hour. LAWA anticipates that it will carry 85 million passengers per year, providing a modern, reliable solution to help ease traffic congestion.

Following construction, LINXS Operators, comprising Fluor, ACS, Bombardier and Hochtief, will provide approximately 25 years of operations and maintenance services.
