SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has completed and is publishing its Record of Decision for the proposed Airport Development Program at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. FAA had published its FEIS on February 10, 2006. The FEIS was prepared by the FAA pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and assessed the potential impact of the proposed Airport Development Program, as well as the No Action Alternative where no improvements at the airport would be made. The FAA accepted comments on the FEIS and these comments along with FAA responses are included in an appendix to the ROD.

The FAA selected the Airport Development Program (ADP) as the preferred alternative in meeting the purpose and need for improvements at the airport. The ADP Alternative includes demolition of Terminal 2 and ancillary facilities, construction and operation of a 33-gate West Terminal Complex and related construction of access roads, concourses, aprons, airline areas and structural and surface parking areas, modifications to Terminal 4, Concourse N4 International Gates, construction and operation of two crossfield Taxiways Uniform “U” and Victor “V”, realignment of Sky Harbor Boulevard, construction and operations of the Automated People Mover (APM) Stage 2, including acquisition of approximately sixteen acres of land to accommodate the proposed APM maintenance control and storage facility and APM station to connect with the Valley Metro Light Rail.
