SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Aviation Administration will prepare an EIS to assess the proposed projects at the Kodiak Airport. The list of major actions proposed to be assessed in the EIS includes improvements to the Runway Safety Areas on Runway 07/25 and Runway 18/36. To improve the safety areas, the FAA will consider alternatives such as the relocation, shifting or realignment of runways; a combination of runway relocation, shifting, grading, realignment; declared distances; and Engineered Material Arresting Systems (EMAS).

The Runway Safety Area deficiencies were identified in the Kodiak Airport Master Plan. The State of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities published the Airport Master Plan in January 2004.

To ensure that the full range of issues related to the proposed actions are addressed and that all significant issues are identified, the FAA intends to coordinate and consult with the public; Start Printed Page 7504tribal governments; and Federal, State, and local agencies that have jurisdiction by law or have special expertise with respect to any environmental impacts associated with the proposed projects.

A public scoping meeting will be held in Kodiak, Alaska on March 28th, 2007.
