Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION:

Notice of Availability of a ROD and Order.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public that it has issued a ROD and Order for a Written Re-evaluation of the FEIS for the Development and Expansion of Runway 9R-27L and Associated Projects at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Broward County, Florida. The FEIS for the runway expansion project was issued in June 2008. The FAA issued a ROD for this Federal action in December 2008. In July 2011, FAA approved a Written Re-evaluation and issued a ROD and Order for further refinements resulting from 60-percent design changes to the previously approved runway expansion. Broward County, the airport sponsor, has submitted a request to the FAA for approval of additional design refinements associated with engineering the new runway and taxiway system as construction of the previously approved project continues. These design changes include realignment of the Airport Perimeter Road on the southwest side of the airport, modification of an emergency navigational aid (NAVAID) access road on the east side of the airport, and the design to the NAVAID runway approach lighting system and the associated maintenance bridge. The current ROD and Order approves the engineering and design refinements to the previously approved project disclosed in the written re-evaluation and as shown on the 2011 Airport Layout Plan.
