ANCHORAGE- Anchorage airport officials are looking to manage increased traffic by improving existing infrastructure.
A proposed master plan for Ted Stevens International Airport would keep the option of adding a new runway as part of a long-term solution. Planners say that would occur only if growth in traffic reaches the highest forecast levels.
In the meantime, officials would work to improve existing runways and taxiways, and they would allow more takeoffs over the city. The next phase would be to use financial incentives to encourage some flights to go to Fairbanks.
Some residents have expressed concern about the impacts of a potential new runway.
