Runway 15-33 Reconstruction Proposal at Lincoln Regional Airport

The Federal Aviation Administration announced that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was approved based on results of a Final Environmental Assessment (Final EA) dated December 2022.  The proposed project is Reconstruction of Runway 15-33 at Lincoln Regional Airport (LHM), City of Lincoln, California.

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.
