$2.3 billion at LAX to build a new state-of-the- art terminal by merging Terminals 2 & 3, and connecting the new terminal to Tom Bradley International Terminal. The new terminal will provide upgrades and enhancements to the customer experience. Passengers will have the opportunity to qualify with the TSA to use the latest facial recognition technology for a “hands- free” experience for departures from LAX. The project is scheduled for completion in 2023. The Delta Terminal 2/3 Connection project recycled over 75% of construction waste
