Construction is expected to begin in 2017, Los Angeles officials said in a press release.The plan is designed to relieve congestion in the central terminal area as well as on local streets in the airport area. The automated train system will feature three stations n the central terminal area."The LAX train will also improve our local economy as part of our airport modernization program that will create 40,000 jobs, remodel terminals and dramatically upgrade the passenger experience at LAX," said L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, who chairs LACMTA's board.
