Notice of Availability of a Draft Environmental Assessment for a Proposed Airport Traffic Control Tower and Base Building, Toledo Express Airport, Swanton, OH, 50809 [2011-20750]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 158 / Tuesday, August 16, 2011 / Notices built to the minimum requirements in TSO–C129a. Two examples of these improvements are: (1) A requirement for the receiver to properly account for satellite range error if it is reflected in the User Range Accuracy index (commonly referred to as being ‘‘Selective Availability aware’’); and, (2) requirements to ensure performance is not degraded due to an increasing radio frequency noise environment as other satellite systems become available. Since 1995, there has been one application for TSOA for TSO–C129a. Therefore, we believe that it is appropriate to cancel TSO–C129a, given the eventual obsolescence of TSO– C129a equipment, and the lack of industry interest in new TSO–C129a product designs.

Notice of Availability of a Draft Environmental Assessment for a 
Proposed Airport Traffic Control Tower and Base Building, Toledo 
Express Airport, Swanton, OH

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of availability of a draft environmental assessment for 
a proposed airport traffic control tower and base building, Toledo 
Express Airport, Swanton, OH.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to fund, 
construct, and operate a new Airport Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) and 
Base Building at the Toledo Express Airport (TOL), Swanton, Ohio. The 
existing TOL ATCT and collocated Terminal Radar Approach Control 
facility are outdated and outmoded. The FAA's preferred alternative is 
to construct the ATCT at a location located near the airport terminal 
building and approximately 1,000 feet west of the existing ATCT 
facility. The purpose and need of the proposed project is to improve 
visibility of airport surfaces, provide adequate space to improve 
operational and administrative efficiency, increase the efficient 
functionality of the facility, and have the capability to meet future 
operational and administrative expansion requirements. The FAA has 
prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) in conformance with the 
requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) 
and FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. 
The DEA analyzes the potential environmental impacts that may result 
from construction and operation of the proposed new ATCT and Base 
Building at the proposed site, as well as the no action alternative 
(i.e., not constructing and operating the ATCT). Ancillary actions that 
would be taken in order to maintain optimal operational characteristics 
include replacement of the current Runway 25 Localizer (LOC) antenna 
and shelter with a Mark 20 or Mark 20A LOC antenna and shelter, and 
relocation of the Runway 25 LOC antenna array to a location 1,070 feet 
outward from the Runway 07 threshold, relocation of the Moving Target 
Indicator reflector and the upgrade of electronics for the Runway 25 
Glide Slope. The DEA is available for public review during a 30-day 
public comment period at Swanton Pubic Library, 305 Chestnut Street, 
Swanton, Ohio 43558.

ADDRESSES: The FAA will accept written comments on the DEA until close 
of business on September 21, 2011. Comments on the DEA may be sent to:
