Evansville Regional Airport Runway 4-22 Improvement Program

Runway 4-22 was improved to comply with the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Runway Safety Area (RSA) design standards. As engineer for the airport, CHA was responsible for environmental, planning, design, and construction efforts to relocate the runway.

The program consisted of multiple enabling projects that needed to be completed in order to permit the construction and shift of Runway 4-22 and its associated navaids. The program was phased over several years to complete the enabling projects and budget FAA discretionary grant funding.

Major program elements included:

  • Environmental Assessment
  • Integrated Noise Analysis and Modeling
  • Land Acquisition
