Airport Officials Fund More Work on LAX Plan

October 04, 2005|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The Airport Commission voted Monday to pay environmental attorneys and consultants $3.6 million to continue work on a modernization plan for Los Angeles International Airport, even though Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa had said he opposed much of the blueprint.

Commissioners authorized $690,000 for Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld and James A. Geocaris to defend the plan against lawsuits, bringing the total contract to $5.6 million over 21 months.

They also approved $2.9 million for CDM Inc. to design plans to mitigate construction noise, pollution and traffic.
