Southwest Florida International Airport


RS&H was retained by the Lee County Port Authority to conduct an environmental documentation report upon the completion of a Master Plan Update for the Southwest Florida International Airport. The environmental documentation report included a review and analysis of two previous environmental assessments that addressed development during those periods. In particular, the analysis evaluated the environmental assessment that was prepared for a future parallel runway to aid in capacity for the Airport. The analysis also evaluated the environmental documentation that was previously done for support facilities for the Airport and noted areas where additional analysis may be required for future development prior to implementation.

Planning and Design

RS&H provided planning and conceptual design services to ensure that Lee County’s new Runway 6R-24L met the airport’s development goals, maximized capacity, and maintained the desired operational The project included conceptual design of the new runway, parallel taxiways, crossfield taxiways, drainage improvements and other associated airfield improvements.
