The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) proposes to design and construct improvements to the Port Lions Airport. The project would realign, lengthen, and widen the existing airport to meet Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) guidelines to ensure continued service as a safe and efficient facility.
Purpose & Need
The DOT&PF and FAA have identified multiple function, operational and safety needs at the Port Lions Airport through previous engineering analysis and scoping efforts. The purpose of the project is to provide safety improvements to the Port Lions Airport and associated facilities that would address these deficiencies with the objective that the airport would continue to fulfill its role as a community class airport.
