Los Angeles International Airport Marks 10th Anniversary of Gateway LAX Enhancement Project



Los Angeles City Councilmember Tom LaBonge and Bill Rosendahl will be joined by 


airport officials and community representatives at a plaque unveiling to commemorate 


the 10th anniversary of the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Gateway 


Enhancement Project. The project was inaugurated August 8, 2000, and has since 


become a modern icon of the City of Los Angeles, welcoming millions of visitors annually 


to Los Angeles. 




The $112-million project encompassed palm trees lining Century Blvd. from Aviation 


Blvd.; landscaping throughout the passenger terminal area; large steel overhead 


signage and lighting along Century Blvd. into the terminal area; new public address 


system; and the iconic 32-foot-high letters spelling out "LAX" with glass pylons ranging 


from 26 feet tall to over 100 feet tall encompassing a public art lighting program.
