Determination: Partially approved. Explosive trace detection equipment has already been deployed to each checkpoint in sufficient number to meet current FAA regulations and operating procedures. Therefore, the explosive trace detection equipment element of this project is not approved.

Wetlands relocation.

Determination: Partially approved. The environmental assessment in support of this project included only the detailed analysis for filling 6.3 acres of wetlands in a portion of the runway protection zone and for remediating 24.08 acres of wetlands located in the southwest portion of ORD. The remaining wetlands have not been environmentally evaluated and thus the public agency cannot meet the requirement of § 158.25(c)(1)(ii)(B) for the remaining wetlands and that portion of the project is not approved.

Concourse L extension.

Runway 18/36 rehabilitation.

Brief Description of Project Approved in Part For Collection at ORD for Future Use at ORD at a $4.50 PFC Level:

Airport Transit System (ATS) maintenance relocation.

Determination: Partially approved. This project meets the nominal requirements for AIP eligibility and, therefore, PFC eligibility under paragraph 594(a) of FAA Order 5100.38A, AIP Handbook (October 24, 1989) which provides for the relocation of a facility that impedes eligible development. However, maintenance facilities are eligible only in so far as they provide maintenance for eligible safety and security equipment per paragraph 567(e)(1) of FAA Order 5100.38A. Therefore, the use of PFC revenue is limited to the cost to replace a like facility. Any expansion or upgrade would not be PFC eligible.

Brief Description of Projects Approved in Part for Collection at ORD and Use at ORD at a $3.00 PFC Level:

Snow/security/fire miscellaneous equipment.

Determination: partially approved. This project included 11 components of which four were determined to be ineligible for AIP and, therefor, PFC funding. The four disapproved components and the reason for each disapproval are: Four pickup truck small salters (these units are not used on runways, taxiways, aprons, or gate areas as required in order to be eligible under AIP criteria); one fire step van (this unit is not required by Part 139 to meet ARFF requirements); three ambulance trucks (these units are not required by Part 139 to meet ARFF requirements); and two portable stairway trucks (these units are not required by Part 139 to meet ARFF requirements).

Oil separators 1, 2, and 3 rehabilitation.

Determination: Partially approved. Any general maintenance, such as the repair to lake erosion, is not AIP eligible and, therefore, is not PFC eligible.

Concession area public space buildout.

Determination: Partially approved. The FAA has determined that a portion of this project is for the benefit of the food court and other revenue producing vendors. Therefore, even though the public agency identifies these areas as public seating and for public use, the FAA has concluded that the seating areas proposed for the E/F apex, H/K apex, and Rotunda are not AIP or PFC eligible. However, in addition to the seating areas, the public agency proposes circulation improvements intended to improve the efficiency of passenger movements between and among terminals and concourses as well as provide access to restroom facilities. The public agency estimates that the circulation portion of the project has been reduced by the final design of the various areas to the point that the PFC portion of the project is approximately 32 percent of the total. Furthermore, the FAA's analysis concluded that the Concourse B food court does not provide additional public circulation and is primarily for the benefit of the vendor area. Thus, the Concourse B area is completely ineligible. In addition, since the public agency listed the Concourse H and K food courts separately from the H/K apek, the FAA assumes these are separate areas. However, because the public agency did not provide any plans, sketches, or additional information regarding these food courts, the FAA was unable to determine if any portion of those areas was eligible. Therefore, PFC funds cannot be used to fund any improvements in the H and K food courts.

Airport maintenance complex addition.Start Printed Page 31968

Determination: Partially approved. This project is generally eligible under AIP criteria, paragraphs 567(d) and 568 of FAA Order 5100.38A, AIP Handbook (October 24, 1989). However, to the extent a building houses both eligible and ineligible equipment, the eligible cost of the building and utilities for the building must be a prorated share of the total project cost, under paragraph 568 of FAA Order 5100.38A.

Landside formulation.

Determination: Partially approved. Elements of work not specifically identified in the public agency's PFC Attachment B's for this project are not included in this approval. Furthermore, to the element that any of the elements listed involve ineligible (off-airport) work, the costs of planning, study, assessment, and design attributable to the off-airport portion of the project is not PFC eligible.

High temperature water piping: elimination of ball joints.

Determination: Partially approved. This project is generally eligible under AIP criteria, paragraph 568 of FAA Order 5100.38A, AIP Handbook (October 24, 1989). However, to the extent the high temperature water piping serves both eligible and ineligible buildings and/or spaces, the eligible cost of utilities for the airport must be a prorated share of the total project cost.

Brief Description of Projects Approved in Part for Collection at ORD for Future Use at ORD at a $3.00 PFC Level:

Concourse C upgrade.

Determination: Partially approved. Some elements of this project may meet the nominal requirements for AIP eligibility, and therefore, PFC eligibility under paragraph 551 of FAA order 5100.38A, AIP Handbook (October 24, 1989). However, the FAA has determined that the public agency did not provide sufficient description or justification concerning the majority of the proposed elements to allow a determination of nominal eligibility for those elements. The FAA was able to conclude that the restroom work, insofar as this work is needed to comply with ADA requirements, is eligible. The information provided on the remaining tasks in this project did not allow the FAA to conclude that the remainder of this project involved eligible reconstruction/repair rather than ineligible maintenance work (paragraph 501 of FAA Order 5100.38A).

Concourse B upgrade.

Determination: partially approved. Some elements of this project may meet the nominal requirements for AIP eligibility, and, therefore, PFC eligibility under paragraph 551 of FAA Order 5100.38A, AIP Handbook (October 24, 1989). However, the FAA has determined that the public agency did not provide sufficient description or justification concerning the majority of the proposed elements to allow a determination of nominal eligibility for those elements. The FAA was able to conclude that the restroom work, insofar as this work is needed to comply with ADA requirements, in eligible. The information provided on the remaining tasks in this project did not allow the FAA to conclude that the remainder of this project involved eligible reconstruction/repair rather than ineligible maintenance work (paragraph 501 of FAA Order 5100.38A).

Concourse L upgrade.

Determination: Partially approved. Some elements of this project may meet the nominal requirements for AIP eligibility, and therefore, PFC eligibility under paragraph 551 of FAA Order 5100.38A, AIP Handbook (October 24, 1989). However, the FAA has determined that the public agency did not provide sufficient description or justification concerning the majority of the proposed elements to allow a determination of nominal eligibility for those elements. The FAA was able to conclude that the restroom work, insofar as this work is needed to comply with ADA requirements, is eligible. The information provided on the remaining tasks in this project did not allow the FAA to conclude that the remainder of this project involved eligible reconstruction/repair rather than ineligible maintenance work (paragraph 501 of FAA Order 5100.38A).

Concourse K upgrade.

Determination: Partially approved. Some elements of this project may meet the nominal requirements for AIP eligibility, and therefore, PFC eligibility under paragraph 551 of FAA Order 5100.38A, AIP Handbook (October 24, 1989). However, the FAA has determined that the public agency did not provide sufficient description or justification concerning the majority of the proposed elements to allow a determination of nominal eligibility for those elements. The FAA was able to conclude that the restroom work, insofar as this work is needed to comply with ADA requirements, is eligible. The information provided on the remaining tasks in this project did not allow the FAA to conclude that the remainder of this project involved eligible reconstruction/repair rather than ineligible maintenance work (paragraph 501 of FAA Order 5100.38A).

Concourse H upgrade.

Determination: Partially approved. Some elements of this project may meet the nominal requirements for AIP eligibility, and therefore, PFC eligibility under paragraph 551 of FAA Order 5100.38A, AIP Handbook (October 24, 1989). However, the FAA has determined that the public agency did not provide sufficient description or justification concerning the majority of the proposed elements to allow a determination of nominal eligibility for those elements. The FAA was able to conclude that the restroom work, insofar as this work is needed to comply with ADA requirements, is eligible. The information provided on the remaining tasks in this project did not allow the FAA to conclude that the remainder of this project involved eligible reconstruction/repair rather than ineligible maintenance work (paragraph 501 of FAA Order 5100.38A).

New police facility.

Determination: Partially approved. The FAA has determined that not all activities at the Police Facility support Part 107 functions. The Federal Security Manager for ORD has determined that approximately 80 percent of the facility will support Part 107 activities and, thus, this approval is limited to that 80 percent of the facility which is eligible.

Brief Description of Withdrawn Project:

Airside perimeter road rehabilitation/construction

Determination: this project was withdrawn by the public agency by Start Printed Page 31969letter dated January 4, 2001. Therefore, the FAA did not rule on this project in this decision.

Brief Description of Disapproved Projects:

Automated vehicle identification—ground transportation.

Determination: Disapproved. The FAA has determined that this project provides a system for controlling commercial vehicles (taxis and limousines) and charging them for the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority commercial vehicle tax. The FAA has determined that the collection of a local vehicle tax does not preserve or enhance capacity, safety, or security, furnish opportunities for enhanced competition between or among air carriers, or mitigate noise impacts resulting from aircraft operations at ORD. Therefore, this project does not meet the requirements of § 158.15(a).

Perimeter intrusion detection system—phase II.

Determination: Disapproved. The FAA's Federal Security Manager for ORD has reviewed the proposed project and has determined that the existing 10-foot fence with outriggers and barbed wire, when combined with periodic patrols, meets the requirements of part 107. Therefore, this project is not required to meet part 107, does not meet the requirements of § 158.15(b)(1), and is not PFC eligible.

360 degree Silicon Graphics Incorporated based tower simulator.

Determination: Disapproved. Training programs for air traffic controllers are not airport development as defined by AIP criteria. In addition, the development of new flight patterns or procedures is not AIP eligible. Therefore, this project does not meet the requirements of § 158.15(b)(1).

Zemke road extension.

Determination: Disapproved. The FAA has determined that the scope of the project describes a roadway that will be utilized for access to the soon-to-be-built United Airlines corporate headquarters building, a non-aeronautical facility. As presently depicted, this road does not exclusively serve airport traffic as is required by paragraph 553(a)(3) of FAA Order 5100.38A, AIP Handbook (October 24, 1989). therefore, this project does not meet the requirements of § 158.15(b)(1).

Brief Description of Project Approved for Collection at SLC and Use at Tooele Valley Airport at a $3.00 PFC Level:

Wildlife fence.

Brief Description of Disapproved Project: Category III and approach lighting system with sequence flashers—II, runway 16R (now runway 16L).

Determination: Disapproved. The FAA has determined that if a notice to proceed or start of physical construction for a proposed PFC project occurred prior to November 5, 1990 (the date the PFC statute was enacted), the project is not PFC eligible under § 158.3. This is because implementation of a construction project occurs when the notice to proceed is issued or physical construction is begun, whichever is first. The notice to proceed for this project was issued October 22, 1990. Therefore, this project is not eligible to receive PFC funding at any PFC level.

Decision Date: April 30, 2001.
