Project Elements

Airfield & Terminal Modernization Project Elements

Airfield icon Airfield Improvements



What are we proposing?

  • Reconfigure taxiways and runway exits to meet current FAA design standards
  • Improve runway exit configurations to enhance pilot visibility
  • Extend Taxiway D westerly to better manage airfield operations and to meet FAA standards
  • Improve Taxiways C & D for access to new Concourse 0 and Terminal 9 facilities

Why are we proposing it?

  • Reduces wait times on the airfield, which would lead to less aircraft idling and a decrease in air pollutant emissions
  • Increases operational efficiency, which reduces delays and enhances safety
