* Begin a traffic study to figure out how to unlock congestion on roads around the airport and ask the FAA to allow the airport to fund up to $3.3 million in intersection and roadway improvements in El Segundo and $33 million in improvements to the Century Boulevard corridor in Inglewood.
* Ensure that myriad measures to ease traffic, air pollution and noise that were included in a separate agreement with residents don't fall by the wayside. These include the conversion of ground equipment at LAX to low-emissions technology and providing electricity to gates where airplanes park.
* Reconsider extending the Metro Rail Green Line to LAX.
* And spend $3 million to remove abandoned asphalt streets on the dunes west of the airport and replace them with native plants.
For all its complexity, airport officials said, one of the most important things about the deal is that it allows them to start construction at LAX for the first time since the upper-level roadway and the Tom Bradley terminal were built in preparation for the 1984 Olympics.
"We got there," said Kennard. "No one ever thought we could get there."
Los Angeles International Airport officials intend to start construction early next year to rebuild the southern runway complex to prevent close calls between aircraft. Every other project in the $11-billion modernization plan for LAX is now under review.

The city's airport agency will start its third attempt in 11 years to devise a palatable proposal to upgrade the 77-year-old facility as soon as the litigation is dropped in state and federal court.
Sued by several cities, LAX agrees to limit growth and halts plans to rebuild runways, a terminal and parking.
In her first year back in the pilot's seat, Lydia Kennard has managed to get some long-delayed projects off the ground.
Officials will outline options for improving traffic flow, a key element in updating the airport's design.
