The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners on Tuesday awarded a design contract to a Los Angeles firm for the expansion of the Van Nuys FlyAway bus terminal.

Commissioners voted 3 to 0 to hire Daniel, Mann, Johnson & Mendenhall of Los Angeles to perform design and construction administration work for a new FlyAway terminal that will accommodate additional buses and other transportation services. Total cost of the design work is not to exceed $699,112.

The terminal project will include 500 additional parking spaces, a larger waiting area, an ATM machine, improved vehicle and pedestrian flow, and better food service. The terminal's 2,000-space parking lot fills during peak travel periods. In 1998, the facility served 575,000 passengers and 142,000 LAX employees who commute to the airport on FlyAway buses.

Expansion of the Van Nuys FlyAway facility "is an important first step toward Los Angeles World Airports' development of a proposed network of intermodal facilities spread geographically across Los Angeles County," said Commission President John J. Agoglia.

The $18.5-million expansion is expected to start in the summer or fall of 2001 and be completed before Thanksgiving 2002.
