Notice of Virtual Presentation and Opportunity to Provide Scoping Comments for the Environmental Assessment at RDU
Presentation available on Wednesday, 21/Jul/2021 at https://www.airportprojects.net/rdu-ea/
and public comments will be accepted for 30 days (through 5pm on 23/Aug/2021).
The Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority (RDUAA) is issuing this notice to advise the public that an [Environmental Assessment] EA will be prepared to assess the potential environmental impacts of the Proposed 5L/23R Runway Replacement Project at Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The existing 5L/23R runway is 33 years old and the pavement is deteriorating and needs to be replaced. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will serve as the lead federal agency for the EA. The EA will be prepared in accordance with the procedures described in FAA Order[masked]B, NEPA Implementing Instructions for Airport Actions, and FAA Order 1050.lF, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures.
Due to health precautions related to COVID-19, there will be no in-person scoping meeting. RDUAA and the FAA are posting a presentation for the public to review the proposed project, the EA process, and to learn more about the purpose and need, potential alternatives, and the environmental resources to be analyzed. The public will then have 30 days to review and provide comments on issues they believe should be addressed in the EA. The presentation will be provided beginning July 21, 2021 on following website: https://www.airportprojects.net/rdu-ea/
Comments may be submitted no later than 5:00 p.m. August 23, 2021 to the following:
