involves the relocation of the existing Federal Aviation Administration Airport
Surveillance Radar (ASR) 9 navigational aid facilities that are located in the
footprint of the North Terminal Project. It also
includes installation of the new Low Level Windshear Alert System–Wind
Measuring Equipment (LLWAS-WME). The Project work consists of site preparation,
construction of a new building, installation of new electrical and fiber duct
banks, tower erection, installation of equipment and
demolition of the existing LLWAS-CFW sites.
On April 17, 2013, the Airport announced its decision to move forward
with a Long-Term Strategic Development Plan to construct a new terminal
facility. Five alternatives were considered. Four of the alternatives - No Action Alternative, Refurbishment Alternative Southside Alternative, and Westside Alternative
- involve rehabilitation or new construction on the southeast side of
the Airport on or near the current terminal location. The preferred
alternative is the Northside Alternative located on the northeast side of the Airport property.
