This website was developed to keep the public informed about the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Proposed Runway 5L/23R Replacement Project at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. This website is being maintained throughout the EA process to keep the public updated of meetings, project developments, and opportunities for public involvement.

Current Events

All comments received on the Draft EA are being reviewed in their entirety by the Airport Authority, the FAA, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). All comments will be evaluated and responded to through revisions of the Draft EA.

Park Economy 3 Expansion

The Park Economy 3 Expansion is not an element of the Proposed Action being considered in the EA. The FAA reviewed the Park Economy 3 expansion project and determined that, due to Section 163 of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, it did not have regulatory authority over this project. Because the FAA does not have regulatory authority, the FAA does not have an action subject to the National Environmental Policy Act. The Airport Authority must still comply with other environmental laws and regulations as applicable.
