The Midfield Satellite Concourse North Project is a part of a modernization program underway at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The MSC North Project consists of an 11-gate concourse, aircraft parking aprons, taxiways/lanes, utilities and provision for conveyance systems, including a potential automated people mover. MSC North will increase flexibility in scheduling terminal improvements without interrupting daily operations and reduce reliance on remote gates. MSC North will help ensure more efficient airport operations and a high level of service for LAX passengers and will provide modernized facilities for existing aircraft at LAX to better accommodate day-to-day airport operations. The airport’s last major expansion came in 1984, with the opening of the Bradley terminal and domestic Terminal 1. The current expansion is a major step for the LAX Master Plan, released in 2005.
