OMNNI conducted an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed crosswinds runway construction in accordance with National Environmental Policy Act. The EA included a statement of proposed project purpose and need. The process included proposed project, setting and area descriptions, coordination with the appropriate agencies and interested parties, a hazardous materials assessment, and an evaluation of potential impacts. An existing runway extension was evaluated and rejected and a preferred alternative of constructing a new runway was proposed. Other alternatives including a “no action” option were assessed.
