Last month, the New Orleans Aviation Board recommended an $826 million redevelopment plan to improve Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. According to a recent article by the Greater New Orleans Hotel & Lodging Association, the renovations will transform the mid-century airport into a new airport that represents the modern era.
RS&H will be conducting environmental impact studies for the renovations, which will analyze surface traffic, floodplains, environmental justice, noise, air quality, historic resources, and wetlands.
The development plan for the airport includes a new, 30-gate terminal with three concourses and a parking garage, as well as a hotel. Currently, the plan does not include new runways, the single greatest expense for any airport redevelopment.
