To address the project’s primary goal of safety, the project will utilize an innovative design by constructing the first overpass at the Airport in an effort to provide separation between the multiple modes of transportation operating in and around the Airport. The project will relocate the Airport Drive/Spotted Road intersection with a new grade-separated interchange above and across 5 lanes of Airport Drive. This project will:
The Airport is also partnering with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to complete another significant safety improvement by realigning a portion of Spotted Road outside of the Airport’s Runway Protection Zone (RPZ). The RPZ is a clear zone designated by the FAA to prevent air navigation hazards as well as to reduce hazards and increase safety to people on the ground.
