Runway 15-33 is nearing the end of its service life and requires complete reconstruction. The pavement is weathering and cracks have developed due to thermal expansion and contraction. The project is currently in the environmental permitting phase.

Project Cost

$12 million

Funding Sources

  • Airport Operations Fund 750
  • Federal Aviation Administration Grant Fund 755

Final Environmental Assessment

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was approved based on results from a Final Environmental Assessment, dated December 2022

The FAA approval of the City of Lincoln’s proposal is to reconstruct the airport’s only runway, Runway 15-33. The proposed runway reconstruction project is described in Section 4 of the FONSI, and detailed in Section 1.3 of the Final EA:

  • Reconstruct Runway 15-33
  • Regrade Runway Safety Areas
  • Remove objects from the Runway Object Free Area
  • Relocate Service Roads
  • Raise existing Runway 15-33 lights to match new runway grade
  • Install new runway lights
  • Install new guidance signs and new Precision Approach Path Indicators
  • Match new runway grade to existing cross taxiways
  • Excavate and eliminate a topographic feature which penetrates Part 77 airspace

The FONSI indicates that the proposed action is consistent with existing environmental policies and objectives as set forth in the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 in that it will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment.

Mitigated Negative Declaration and Mitigation Monitoring/Reporting Plan 

The City of Lincoln has prepared an Initial Study (IS) of environmental effects and intends to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) and Mitigation Monitoring/Reporting Plan (MMRP). Public comment period ended July 22, 2022. Thank you for your input!


Airport Layout Plan Update - CIP 383

The Lincoln Regional Airport Layout Plan was last updated in 2020.

The Airport Layout Plan (ALP) serves as a planning tool that depicts both existing facilities and planned development for an airport. Sponsors of airport development carried out at federally obligated airports, must accomplish the improvement in accordance with an FAA approved ALP.

By definition, the ALP is a plan for an airport that shows: 

  • Boundaries and proposed additions to all areas owned or controlled by the sponsor for airport purposes
  • The location and nature of existing and proposed airport facilities and structures
  • The location on the airport of existing and proposed non-aviation areas and improvements thereon.
