The FAA has extended to September
22, 2006, the public comment period for the draft written
reevaluation of a proposed centerfield taxiway at Logan
International Airport. The extension will allow for additional
public participation in the project.
The draft reevaluation and backup technical report, required
under the FAA’s Record of Decision for the Logan Airside
Improvements Planning Project, reviewed taxiway operations north of
runway 15R-33L at Boston Logan International Airport. FAA deferred
its decision on the proposed centerfield taxiway until the taxiway
operations north of runway 15R -33L were assessed.
If approved by the FAA, the centerfield taxiway would be a 9,300
foot parallel taxiway between runway 4L and 4R. The centerfield
taxiway is an important element in making Logan a safer airport. It
would reduce the chance of conflicts between taxiing aircraft and
aircraft operating on the runway. The centerfield taxiway would
also allow aircraft to taxi to the runway or to the gate more
efficiently. Additionally, it would reduce the number of aircraft
queuing on existing taxiways, thus reducing delays and air
emissions. The proposed centerfield taxiway is included in the list
of airfield actions to improve Boston Logan's efficiency and was
studied extensively in the Boston-Logan Airside Improvements
Planning EIS/EIR (1995 to 2002).
The draft reevaluation and associated technical report are
available at public libraries in East Boston and Winthrop, and are
also available for viewing and downloading at the Airports New
England Region website.
