The Raleigh-Durham International Airport will share the preferred vision plan for the airport over the next 25 years Tuesday before it is presented to the RDU board later this month.
Residents can view and comment on the master plan at the airport’s ninth public workshop from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at the Marriott Research Triangle Park at 4700 Guardian Drive in Durham.
Representatives from RDU and its consultant, Ricondo & Associates, Inc., will give a brief presentation at the beginning of the workshop and will be answer questions, according to airport staff.
The concept plan will depict runway and taxiways, terminals, parking and other features that will be needed as airport use increases, such as 23 additional gates airport staff expect to need by 2040. This is part of an 18-month master planning process, called Vision 2040, that began last summer and is expected to be completed late this year.
This process has garnered concerns from thousands of local hikers and cyclists, who want to preserve more than 600 acres of forested land and recreational trails between Lake Crabtree County Park and William B. Umstead State Park.
