Gridlock at LAX - What's the solution?

Hosted by
LAX, one of the world's major airports, is too small to handle the growth that's expected in the near future. Mayor Riordan and others claim that delaying or declining expansion will cost Southern California new business. Neighbors, tired of the rattled windows, airborne soot and snarled auto traffic generated by LAX, are opposed to the increased business, ground-traffic, pollution and noise expansion that LAX will bring. Will their demand for a regional plan, with growth handled by airports in Orange County and the Inland Empire, fly? Will air travelers and cargo carriers go there?
