The Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Aviation Administration (MDOT MAA) will host a public workshop this month to provide information on proposed improvement projects at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport.

The workshop on study documents related to the projects, the Updated Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) and the Draft Section 4(f) Determination, will be held on Wednesday, March 11, from 5 to 8 p.m., in the assembly room of the MDOT MAA offices, 991 Corporate Boulevard, Linthicum.

MDOT MAA has identified the need for a number of improvements at the airport, including pavement rehabilitation, obstruction removal, terminal improvements, taxiway construction, helipad relocation, construction of aircraft maintenance facilities, vehicle service roadway construction, aircraft firefighting facility expansion and fire training facility relocation.

The proposed improvements are intended to meet Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) design standards, enhance airfield safety and efficiency, accommodate existing and anticipated passenger demand, and improve customer service. The proposed improvements in this Updated Draft EA and Draft Section 4(f) Determination would have no impact on airline flight track locations or the number of airline operations at BWI Marshall.
