Projects in Construction
The primary purpose of the project is to construct and extend Taxiway Golf (G) to the west of its current location. With the opening of the new Terminal, north of Runway 11/29, Taxiway G needs to be extended to better accommodate the traffic that will use Runway 11-29, specifically the 29 Approach.
The extension will be an additional 1500 feet from the existing west end of Taxiway G and will connect Taxiway G with the Runway 11 end. In addition, Taxiway Bravo will be built out from its current stub out from Runway 11-29 and tie into Taxiway G.
The project will also include installation of lighting and signage for all new pavements.
The New MSY Terminal
The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport built a new terminal to better meet the needs of the traveling public. The former terminal was built in 1959, making it almost 60 years old. In addition to the challenges that arise from maintaining an aging building, airport security requirements and aviation industry best practices have changed drastically since that time.
To provide the most efficient and cost-effective facility the City desires, the Airport replaced the former terminal as well as the apron and roadways with a new, $1 billion terminal on the north side of airport property.
Airfield Lighting Vault Relocation
The project will relocate the existing Airfield Lighting Vault building and related airfield electrical infrastructure to allow for the North Terminal project to be developed. The work consists constructing a new 4600 SF building to house equipment associated with the airfield lighting system. Airfield ductbanks will be re-routed around the proposed apron area. Once the new building is complete and operational, the existing vault building will be demolished to allow construction to begin on the new terminal.
