Responding to allegations it built a defective runway at Los Angeles International Airport, a major construction company on Wednesday claimed it is the victim of a witch hunt and blamed poor maintenance by LAX workers for the deteriorating pavement. Tutor-Saliba Corp., of Sylmar, which participated in the $250-million project to relocate the southernmost runway at LAX, leveled the charges in a letter sent to Gina Marie Lindsey, executive director of Los Angeles World Airports. The agency sued Tutor and four other contractors in October, asserting that the 13,000-foot runway is riddled with defects, including premature cracking, exposed steel reinforcing bars and deteriorating concrete.

Fresh concerns were raised Wednesday about construction of a new Los Angeles Police Department headquarters after the project drew only one bid, from a builder with a controversial record. And the price was $43 million higher than the city's $200 million estimated cost.

Tutor-Saliba Corp. and several partners have agreed to pay the city and county of San Francisco $19 million to settle a lawsuit alleging that the firm overbilled the city and manipulated minority contracting laws as lead builder on the expansion of San Francisco International Airport.

The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday against reviewing a contract with a firm that plans to move the southernmost runway at Los Angeles International Airport. That means the project can go forward. The plan is to shift the runway 55 feet to the south -- or closer to El Segundo -- to create a taxiway between the pair of runways on the south side of LAX. The purpose is to reduce close calls involving planes landing, taking off and taxiing.

Some travelers who parked in the new garage at the Van Nuys FlyAway returned this week to find their vehicles splattered with concrete residue that had spilled out of the ceiling during recent heavy rains. The leaching concrete dripped onto dozens of vehicles and prompted the Los Angeles airport agency to briefly shut down the garage after receiving complaints from irate owners. The leaks are the latest in a series of problems to plague the park-and-ride expansion project.
