An LAX exit to Century Boulevard will be closed Saturday evening until Sunday morning for crews to prepare for the construction of the Automated People Mover train guideway that will cross Century Boulevard.

The Century Boulevard bridge, which connects Upper World Way to Century Boulevard, will close at 11 p.m. and reopen at 7 a.m., LAX officials said.

People who are exiting the Central Terminal Area on Upper World Way can detour via Center Way to access Lower World Way. People on Sepulveda Boulevard can detour on 96th Street to access Century Boulevard.

The Automated People Mover is part of a $14.5 billion modernization project at LAX, the largest airport project of its kind in the U.S. The train system will have six total stations — three inside the Central Terminal Area and three outside the CTA, which will connect the train system to L.A. Metro and a car rental facility. Officials expect the train system to be ready in 2023, and the full modernization project is expected to be completed ahead of the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.
