ENR Photo Contest Recognizes LAX APM

Engineering News-Record (ENR) Magazine’s “2022 Year in Construction” photo contest recognizes the Los Angeles International Airport’s (LAX) Automated People Mover (APM) project. Out of more than 1,000 submissions, only 40 made the list.  

“The unfinished bridge along with the LAX light pylons made it an amazing sight. I saw the view and I had to take the shot,” said Brandon Tseng, who works in Airport Operations at Los Angeles International Airport. Tseng took the photo in March 2022 using a Nikon D750 with a 24-70 mm lens. 

Segmental cantilever construction spans over major roadways — without immediate falsework. This solution allowed all traffic lanes to and from one of the world’s busiest airports to remain open during construction. 

About the award 

Since 2002, Engineering News-Record has invited individuals and firms to submit photos to its annual “Year in Construction” photo contest.
