Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that operates Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), has scheduled a public workshop to allow interested parties the opportunity to review and provide written comments on the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Cross Field Taxiway Project at LAX.

The meeting is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, October 15th, in the Flight Path Learning Center at the Imperial Terminal, 6661 W. Imperial Highway, Westchester. No decision regarding the project will be made at the workshop.

The Cross Field Taxiway Project is proposed to add or relocate certain LAX airfield facilities, including construction of a new cross field taxiway, and adjacent vehicle service road, between the north and south runway complexes.

The project would also extend an existing taxiway, relocate several aircraft parking locations and a ground vehicle parking lot, realign a portion of World Way West that will pass under the new taxiway and involve construction of a new fire station/aircraft rescue and fire fighting facility.

The draft EIR is available for review at the Los Angeles World Airports Web site, www.ourlax .org/ “Projects ñ Publications”; and the Westchester-Loyola Village Branch Library, 7114 Manchester Ave., Westchester.

Written comments can be submitted at the public workshop, by e-mail to crossfieldproject@ lawa.org/, or to Los Angeles World Airports, Airport and Facilities Planning – Attention: Dennis Quilliam, 7301 World Way West, Third Floor, Los Angeles 90045-5803.

Comments must be received no later than 5 p.m. November 10th.

Information or questions regarding this project, Dennis Quilliam, (310) 646-7614, ext. 1017.
