Start Supplemental Information
The FONSI approved the Sponsor's proposed action to extend primary Runway 14-32 (approximately 600′ x 60′) and construct turnaround (approximately 200′ x 75′) on Runway 14 end. Extend graded safety area (approximately 200′ x 120′) on Runway 14 end. Acquire approximately 63.0 acres of land in fee and acquire approximately 2.0 acres of restrictive easements.
The approved action is to enhance the safety and utility of the airport in order to meet the needs of current and projected aviation activity by the design family. The need for the action is to bring the Murdo Municipal Airport in compliance with FAA design standards for 95% of A/B-I Small Aircraft (design aircraft family), specifically runway length.
The FONSI indicates the project is consistent with existing environmental policies and objectives as set forth in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended and will not significantly affect the quality of the environment.
In reaching this decision, the FAA has given careful consideration to: (a) The role of Murdo plays in the national air transportation system, (b) aviation safety, and (c) preferences of the airport owner/operator, and (d) anticipated environmental impact.
