Construction on a multi-billion dollar development program at Los Angeles International Airport continued Wednesday after officials lifted two holiday construction moratoriums. Now that the airport's record-setting holiday travel season is over, travelers should be aware of road closures and possible terminal changes.

This year's projects include a "people mover" designed to cut foot traffic by as much as 40 percent, landscape updates, terminal streamlining and parking structure repairs.

Roadwork on Parking Structure 3, for instance, will cause traffic delays, and the left-most lane on the departures level may be closed between 4 a.m. and 1 p.m. as crews finish elevator repairs and landscaping, LAX spokesman Charles Pannunzio told KPCC.

Here are the projects that will continue in 2017, according to the Los Angeles World Airports website:

Terminal 1

Terminal 2

Terminal 4

Terminal 7, 8
