Airport Cargo Road Rehabilitation

This project involves design and engineering services for the rehabilitation and enhancements to the existing roadway system throughout the cargo/general aviation area of the airport adjoining the southwest portion of the airfield. Anticipated repairs and rehabilitations include fire hydrant relocations, mill and overlay of identified asphaltic concrete pavements, roadway base repairs, selective concrete slab replacements, intersection radii improvements and miscellaneous utility adjustments where required for roadway improvements, additional street lighting, roadway signage and stripping, and landscaping. The project also includes design improvements to the existing storm water drainage system on the West Apron (Ramp 7). The project does not include Crofton Road which is governed by the City of Kenner.

Long-Term Infrastructure Development Plan On April 17, 2013, the Airport announced its decision to move forward with a Long-Term Strategic Development Plan to construct a new terminal facility. Five alternatives were considered. Four of the alternatives - No Action Alternative, Refurbishment Alternative Southside Alternative, and Westside Alternative - involve rehabilitation or new construction on the southeast side of the Airport on or near the current terminal location. The preferred alternative is the Northside Alternative located on the northeast side of the Airport property.
