Expect Sepulveda Delays Going to LAX

Street resurfacing on Sepulveda Boulevard near Los Angeles International Airport will continue Tuesday and throughout the week, possibly causing traffic delays for people trying to reach the airport.

The work is being done by the Los Angeles Bureau of Street Services from 76th/77th Street to 84th Place along Sepulveda. Drivers are being advised to use Kentwood Avenue, South La Tijera Boulevard or other alternative routes.

"The last thing we want is for travelers to be late for their flight, or under undue stress due to known traffic impacts," said Los Angeles World Airports Deputy Executive Director of External Affairs Trevor Daley.

"We hope that all visitors to LAX will give themselves ample time to get to the airport and on to their gates. Advanced planning is doubly important when construction or road work is scheduled in and around LAX, which is why we recommend getting to the airport two hours before the listed boarding time for a domestic flight, and three hours before an international flight," he said.

Hours for the resurfacing project are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
