Airport Authority To Hold Public Workshop Tuesday On Final Alternatives and Airport Land Use

RDU Airport, N.C. – As a follow-up to two public workshops held earlier in June, the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority will hold a public workshop to present the final four development alternatives and present airport land use concepts.

The public workshop will be held at the Airport Authority Administrative Offices (1000 Trade Dr., Morrisville, NC 27560, Room 100) on Tuesday, June 28 at 6 p.m. This is the 7th public workshop RDU has held since Vision 2040 kicked off in mid-2015.

Master plan consultants Ricondo & Associates Inc. will share four conceptual airport development layouts that feature improvements to runways and taxiways, terminals, parking, roadways, ground transportation, general aviation and other support facilities. The four alternatives were developed with assistance from public feedback received at meetings earlier this month.

Consultants will also share potential land use concepts and discuss what the airport is able to do with its land under federal law.

The public is invited to provide feedback at the meeting, which will be considered as the preferred alternative is determined. Feedback can be shared either in-person at the meetings, or on the master plan website at Presentations and renderings from the workshop will be posted online after the June 28 meeting.

RDU’s master plan, to be finalized by the end of 2016, will spell out how the airport will meet expected demand and improve facilities, over the next 25 years. The plan will also include funding and implementation plans.
