Los Angeles International Airport is removing about half the parking spaces at the airport’s least expensive parking lot, Lot C, because of construction work related to the airport’s modernization plan.

LAX is removing 1,230 parking spaces starting Wednesday and will remove an additional 880 starting Dec. 8. The spaces will be reconfigured and re-striped as part of the airport’s massive upgrade, LAX spokesman Frederick Badlissi said Wednesday.

But Badlissi could not say how many spaces would return and when the lot’s face lift would be completed.

Lot C, at 6221 W. 96th St. outside the main terminal area, charges $12 a day for parking. Travelers then hop on a free shuttle to get to the airport. Parking lots near airport terminals charge $30 a day.

More than 2,000 parking spaces at Lot C will remain open for overnight parking. Also, the nearby cellphone waiting lot will remain open.
