Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of availability of a ROD and a written reevaluation of the FEIS.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is making available a ROD and a Written Evaluation of the FEIS in response to FAA procedure changes that have rendered the previously approved third runway unable to accomplish the purpose and need of triple-independent approach operations, thereby minimizing any capacity enhancement that the runway was intended to accomplish. Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Charlotte, North Carolina, has therefore proposed acceptance of another alternative located 600 feet west of the previously approved runway location that was fully analyzed in the EIS as Alternative 5 and that meets the current FAA Airport Design Standards.

Point of Contact: Mr. Scott Seritt, Manager, Airports District Office, Southern Region Federal Aviation Administration, 1701 Columbia Avenue, College Park, GA 30337-2747, (404) 305-7151.
