Background

§                     Aviation is currently in the preliminary design phase for the Fourth Parallel Runway Program with Aviation Consulting Engineers, LLC, which will enhance airfield capacity and operational efficiency.

§                     The Fourth Parallel Runway Program consists of three major design projects, including the New Runway, North End-Around Taxiway (NEAT) Extension, and the South End-Around Taxiway (SEAT).

§                     The NEAT and SEAT projects will enhance safety by reducing runway crossings and increase operational efficiency by providing aircraft the ability to continuously taxi around the two center runways.

§                     These contracts will provide for the final design and bidding services of the individual construction projects within the Fourth Parallel Runway Program.

§                     On August 18, 2022, the city issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ); four responses were received.

§                     Design of all three projects is anticipated to be complete fourth quarter 2024.

§                     This activity is occurring on airport property.

-                     Taxiway V Eastside Connectors Paving and Lighting,
