FAA releases DEIS for passenger terminal replacement at Hollywood Burbank Airport
The proposed terminal project will replace one of the existing Hollywood Burbank Airport terminals which does not meet FAA safety standards.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the proposed replacement passenger terminal project at Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR).
The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority (BGPAA) is proposing to build a new 14-gate passenger terminal in the northeast section of Hollywood Burbank Airport. It would replace the existing 14-gate passenger terminal in the southeast section of the airport which does not meet current FAA safety standards because of its proximity to the taxiways and runways.
The existing passenger terminal would be demolished and the parallel taxiways, Taxiways A and C, would be extended full length to the ends of Runways 15-33 and 8-26, respectively. The project also would include building a 45,900ft2 aircraft apron, public parking structure, airline cargo building, passenger terminal access road, aircraft rescue and fire-fighting station, central utility plant and other infrastructure. A number of structures and facilities would be removed or demolished.
The proposed project that the DEIS evaluates does not involve changes to any airspace procedures. The FAA’s proposed amendments to two existing Hollywood Burbank Airport departure procedures are an independent project that is undergoing a separate federal environmental review.
A 45-day public comment period for the DEIS has begun, with the FAA hosting two virtual public workshops on the document on 23 September 2020 and a virtual public hearing on the proposal on 24 September 2020. FAA representatives will present information about the proposed project and the DEIS. Members of the public will be able to submit written questions, which FAA representatives will answer live following the presentation.
