Mayor Hahn's LAX "Modernization" Plan
won City Council approval
last week, so neighbors of the airport, people who use the airport, people who use the 405, hell, almost everybody in L.A. will be affected by this huge public works/pork project in one way or another.
The one potential silver lining that may help to alleviate the inevitable increase in traffic around LAX? Councilmember LaBonge's successful attempt to insert a provision into the plan that would extend the Green Line
into the airport proper, thereby creating a direct rail link that should finally give travelers a cost-effective, convenient alternative to driving.
