Broken pipe at LAX shuts customs area

March 28, 2007|From Times Staff Reports

Construction workers at LAX inadvertently sliced through a 10-inch water main at a baggage facility near the Tom Bradley International Terminal on Tuesday, flooding the building's customs area.

The break sent up to 3 inches of water into some parts of the customs area.

The damage forced airport officials to send 51 international flights that arrived from about 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. to customs facilities at four other terminals.

Officials hope to reopen part of the building today for arriving passengers.
