Expansion of the Salt Lake City International Airport is proposed to meet the existing and future travel demands of the public and air carriers using the airport. Specifically, it is proposed to increase the safety and efficiency of the airport by reducing congestion and delays. The expansion of the airport has been planned for over 12 years including 2 Master Planning efforts, a FAR Part 150 document (an airport noise compatability planning study), a Capacity Task Force Document, and the Draft Environmental Assessment and Expanded Environmental Assessment efforts in addition to numerous smaller studies and documents.
