The FAA invites public comment on the airport sponsor's request to release property at the Lafayette Regional Airport. The Lafayette Airport Commission requests the release of ± 6.013 acres (five parcels) of airport property. The release of this airport property along the existing U.S. Highway 90 will allow for the sale of these five parcels of airport property to the State of Louisiana, Department of Transportation and Development, which will allow for the construction of the I-49 Connector Project to proceed. The sale is estimated to provide $1,324,370.00 to the Lafayette Airport Commission that will allow the Lafayette Airport Commission to pay the airport sponsor's share for the development of a major cargo apron facility at the Lafayette Regional Airport.

Any person may inspect the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

In addition, any person may, upon request, inspect the application, notice and other documents germane to the application in person at the Lafayette Regional Airport.
