Charlotte Douglas International Airport

Charlotte, NC

Parrish & Partners is serving as a sub-consultant to VHB, Inc. for consulting services to assist the FAA in preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the airport. The Charlotte Douglas International Airport recently updated its Airport Layout Plan (ALP) to evaluate and plan for future development needs over the ensuing 20 years. The ALP update shows the addition of a fourth parallel runway as a replacement for Runway 5/23, the airport’s existing crosswind runway. To address airfield and terminal capacity, the Sponsor is proposing to decommission Runway 5/23 and replace it with a new runway that would enhance airport operational capacity. Additional support infrastructure for the proposed parallel runway may include, without limitation, parallel taxiways, end-around taxiways, aircraft hold pads, exit taxiways, building removal within the runway protection zone, relocation of West Boulevard, and obstruction removal. Other potential projects included in the environmental review are enhancements to the passenger terminal building, relocation of FAA facilities, and land acquisition and release, depending on the selected alternative.
