Based on current issues at the system airports and predicted airside and landside capacity shortfalls over the next 20 years, an optimal plan is developed. The optimal plan consists of existing airport projects and proposed projects to increase capacity, eliminate inefficiencies and expand capabilities.
The RASP includes airport improvements planned by the Houston Airport System (HAS), TxDOT and projects recommended by this study. The airport projects are classified as short-term (2010-2015), mid-term (2016-2020) and long-term (2021-2030). The total cost of the RASP is $2.28 billion over the next 20 years and includes $1.9 billion for HAS projects, $275 million for TASP projects and $87 million for projects recommended by this study. Improvements identified in the RASP are classified by program objective.
Dollar amounts in thousands
SafetyProjects that improve safe aircraft operations.
PreservationProjects that preserve the functional or structural integrity of the airport.
StandardsImprovements required to bring the airport to design standards for current users.
UpgradeImprovements required to expand the airport to accommodate larger aircraft consistent with the airport’s system role.
CapacityExpansion required to accommodate more aircraft or higher activity levels.
