Crossfield Taxiway Project – LAWA

The Crossfield Taxiway Project (CFT) was part of the first phase of LAX’s modernization plan. This project included demolishing existing structures; removing existing deteriorated concrete and asphalt pavement; constructing Portland Cement Concrete and asphalt concrete pavement; installing airfield signage and lighting systems, and airfield pavement markings; and improving storm drains. The project realigned the existing World Way West Road and constructed two bridges over the road – one for aircraft crossing as part of Taxiway C13 and the other for vehicular traffic. The CFT provides another taxiway connection between the north and south airfield complexes at LAX. Construction took place in phases so that impacts on airport operations were kept to a minimum.

CALTROP provided construction inspection and office engineering services for the construction of Taxiway C-13 to improve the quality of LAWA ground operations.
