LGB Phase IIRelease Date: 2020-02-12
The Long Beach Airport is one of the best in the world, with its award-winning concourse, historic terminal, and ease of travel. Now we're modernizing the airport to make the travel experience even better.
Last night, the City Council gave unanimous final approval to fund Phase Two construction of our ongoing airport modernization. The construction will start later this year and support 440 local jobs over the three years it takes to build.
We'll be upgrading the ticketing area, restoring and rehabilitating the terminal, and bringing rental car services indoors. We're also adding pre-security amenities and a new ground transportation area and other improvements.
This massive construction project comes at no cost to the General Fund. Its price tag of more than $100 million includes a grant from the Transportation Security Administration and revenue generated by the Airport.
The awarded project team is made up of all-star companies, comprised of Swinerton Builders, Corgan Associates Inc., Studio One Eleven, and VCA Engineers, Inc.
I also want to thank Councilwoman Stacy Mungo for her ongoing advocacy for improvements at LGB. Our airport just keeps getting better and better. This project is part of a larger vision of ensuring the Long Beach Airport remains a world-class airport known for ease of use, comfortable amenities, and efficiency for both residents and visitors alike.
Go Long Beach,
Mayor Robert Garcia
