The DEA has been prepared in accordance with the Federal National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 1050.1F, and FAA Order 5050.4B. The purpose of the proposed project is to provide adequate runway length and required runway safety areas to accommodate the family of critical design airplanes/aircraft currently operating at the airport and anticipated to operate at the airport in the next five years. The DEA evaluates the environmental, social, and economic consequences of the runway extension and obstruction removal project.
