Supplemental Environmental Assessment

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation

Availability of Supplemental Environmental Assessment – The City of Statesville is required under the provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements to prepare a Supplemental Environmental Assessment (EA) for proposed airport improvements at the Statesville Regional Airport (SVH) in Iredell County, North Carolina. The proposed project consists of construction of improved runway safety areas, closure/modification of a portion of Bethlehem Road, property and avigation easement acquisition, removal of tree obstructions to Runway 10-28, and relocation of navigational aids.

These improvements were included in the 2017 EA approved by the NCDOT Division of Aviation. Federal funds have been programmed and additional studies have been undertaken to address changes in the affected environment and regulations since the 2017 NCDOT approval. Consultants, acting on the behalf of the City of Statesville, have prepared a Supplemental EA describing the anticipated environmental impacts.
