Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land; Terre Haute International Airport; Terre Haute, Indiana.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is considering a proposal to change a portion of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the transfer of airport property (as a part of a land swap) located at Terre Haute International Airport, Terre Haute, Indiana. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use.

The proposal consists of 6.374 acres located in the northeastern section of airport property that is not being used by the airport presently, to be transferred to the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) in exchange for the section of State Road 342 (2.05 acres) that is within the Runway 23 Runway Protection Zone (RPZ). SR342 is the primary access to the Indiana Air National Guard Base at the airport and is the connector road between Frye Road and SR42. INDOT will use the parcel for the construction of Swalls Road, making it the connector to SR 42 from Frye Road maintaining access to the Indiana Air National Guard Base. A larger parcel is required to keep the connection intact between Frye Road and SR 42.

While the land was not obtained with federal grant funds, the airport intends to seek reimbursement for the purchase with future entitlement funds.
