This site replaces the former www.CLTEIS.com website for the Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which was cancelled on February 27, 2019. The City of Charlotte (Airport Sponsor) will now complete the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) evaluation as an Environmental Assessment (EA).
The Airport Sponsor will prepare the EA in accordance with NEPA, all applicable federal regulations, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) guidance. The EA will assess the potential impacts of the proposal to construct:
- Fourth Parallel Runway 1-19 (including End-Around Taxiways)
- Terminal and Ramp Expansion
To ensure the Airport continues to meet current and future demand, the Airport Sponsor plans to implement the above improvements at CLT, proposed for construction by 2028, as recommended in its Master Plan Update and documented on the CLT Airport Layout Plan (ALP).
Similar to the EIS, the EA will evaluate the potential direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental impacts that may result from the Proposed Action. The Sponsor expects to complete the EA in 2020.
ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT NEWS
Beginning December 3, 2020, the public is invited to watch a virtual presentation video on this project website for the Capacity Enhancements Environmental Assessment (EA) at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The virtual presentation will review the EA process, identify the purpose and need of the project, and discuss alternatives developed and considered. The public will then have 30 days to review and provide comments.

If special accommodations, such as audio or visual assistance, are required to view the virtual presentation, or if Internet access is not available, please leave a message at 407-440-1060 by November 27, 2020.
