The 0.014 acre parcel is located on Parcel 1 and 5 of the airport property, Erie County Index No. 039–147.00–001.00. The Airport Authority is requesting release of this land for purposes of providing a drainage easement for construction, inspection, maintenance, repair, reconstruction, and alteration of the highway drainage facilities for Asbury Road. The easement area is on Parcel 5 and consists of undeveloped land with natural growth grass and vegetation. Asbury Road is being widened to accommodate additional anticipated traffic volume related to increased commercial development in and around the airport. This will result in an increase in impervious surface making it necessary to install new stormwater management facilities. As such, a drainage easement will be required for PennDOT to maintain stormwater facilities not located within the PennDOT Right-of-Way. The airport will be permitted to use this property, but will not be able to place any structures, create any adverse impacts to the flow of stormwater, or connect any pipes or drainage into the PennDOT system without written consent from PennDOT. This area is not needed for aeronautical use and its use as PennDOT easement does not limit or restrict the use of dedicated airport land for current or foreseeable aeronautical activities.

Public Notice for Release of Aeronautical Property at Erie 
International Airport (ERI), Erie, PA

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) DOT.

ACTION: Request for public comment.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration is requesting public 
comment on the Erie Regional Airport Authority's request to release 
airport property for use by the Pennsylvania Department of 
Transportation (PennDOT) to construct and maintain additional roadway 
and drainage facilities along the west side of Asbury Road. The request 
contains five (5) components consisting of a permanent release of land, 
release of land for drainage easement, release of land for temporary 
construction easement, release of land for substitute right-of-way, and 
release of land for permanent gas line easement.

(1) Permanent Release of Land (PennDOT Right-of-Way)--0.72 Acres

    The parcel is located at Erie International Airport (ERI) in 
Millcreek Township, Erie County, PA. The property is currently depicted 
on the Airport Layout Plan of record as airport property and consists 
of a narrow strip of land varying from 22 feet to 48 feet in width and 
approximately 800 linear feet long consisting mostly of natural growth 
grass and vegetation bounded by Asbury Rd to the east. More 
specifically, the 0.72 acre parcel is located upon Parcel 4 and 5 of 
the airport property. The County Index Nos. are (33)039-147.00-001.00 
and (33)039-148.00-001.00. The airport is requesting approval to sell 
this land to the PennDOT in a permanent right-of-way easement for 
roadway drainage improvements along the right-of-way boundary between 
Asbury Road and the airport property boundary. This area is not needed 
for aeronautical use and its use as PennDOT Right-of-Way does not limit 
or restrict the use of dedicated airport land for current or 
foreseeable aeronautical activities. Approval of this action will allow 
for the sale of the 0.72 acre right-of-way easement to PennDOT.

(2) Release of Land for Drainage Easement--0.014 Acres

    The easement is located at Erie International Airport (ERI) in 
Millcreek Township, Erie County, PA. The 0.014 acre parcel is located 
on Parcel 1 and 5 of the airport property, Erie County Index No. 039-
147.00-001.00. The Airport Authority is requesting release of this land 
for purposes of providing a drainage easement for construction, 
inspection, maintenance, repair, reconstruction, and alteration of the 
highway drainage facilities for Asbury Road. The easement area is on 
Parcel 5 and consists of undeveloped land with natural growth grass and 
vegetation. Asbury Road is being widened to accommodate additional 
anticipated traffic volume related to increased commercial development 
in and around the airport. This will result in an increase in 
impervious surface making it necessary to install new stormwater 
management facilities. As such, a drainage easement will be required 
for PennDOT to maintain stormwater facilities not located within the 
PennDOT Right-of-Way. The airport will be permitted to use this 
property, but will not be able to place any structures, create any 
adverse impacts to the flow of stormwater, or connect any pipes or 
drainage into the PennDOT system without written consent from PennDOT. 
This area is not needed for aeronautical use and its use as PennDOT 
easement does not limit or restrict the use of dedicated airport land 
for current or foreseeable aeronautical activities. Approval of this 
action will allow for the sale of the 0.014 acre drainage easement to 
PennDOT.

(3) Release of Land for Temporary Construction Easement--0.078 Acres

    The easement is located at Erie International Airport (ERI) in 
Millcreek Township, Erie County, PA. The 0.078 acre area is located on 
Parcels 1 and 5 of the airport property, Erie County Index No. (33) 
039-147.00-001.00. The Airport Authority is requesting release of this 
land for purposes of providing easement for construction activities 
outside the PennDOT Right-of-Way. This request for release of land from 
the Erie Regional Airport Authority is temporary and the land will 
revert back to the airport upon completion of the construction 
activities. The primary purpose of this temporary land release is to 
allow for the adjustment of the existing driveways on Parcel 1 of the 
airport to tie into Asbury Road. Parcel 5 is also temporarily impacted 
while Stormwater Management facilities are being constructed. The 
impacted land, currently consisting of asphalt paved driveways in 
Parcel 1 and undeveloped grass and vegetation on Parcel 5, will be 
restored to similar condition upon completion of the construction work. 
This area is not needed for aeronautical use and its use as a temporary 
construction easement does not limit or restrict the use of dedicated 
airport land for current or foreseeable aeronautical activities. 
Approval of this action will allow for the granting of the temporary 
easement consisting of 0.078 acres to PennDOT.

(4) Release of Land for Substitute Right-of-Way Utility Easement--0.198 
Acres

    The easement is located at Erie International Airport (ERI) in 
Millcreek Township, Erie County, PA. The 0.198 acre area is located 
along the west side of Asbury Road and is situated on Parcel 5 of the 
airport property on County Index No. (33) 039-147.00-001.00. The 
property to be released is a strip of land of natural growth grass and 
vegetation approximately 20' wide and running parallel along the west 
side of Asbury Road. The release will provide a replacement utility 
easement for Millcreek Township Water and Sewer Authority to construct, 
inspect, maintain, repair and reconstruct water line facilities along 
Asbury Road. The existing utility easement is located on airport 
property. Asbury Road is being widened by PennDOT to accommodate 
additional traffic volume related to increased commercial development 
in the vicinity of the airport. As part of the roadway project, a new 
water main will need to be constructed outside the limits of the 
pavement of the widened Asbury Road. This easement will

[[Page 82348]]

provide a substitute Right-of-Way Easement for locating the replacement 
water main. This area is not needed for aeronautical use and its use as 
a temporary construction easement does not limit or restrict the use of 
dedicated airport land for current or foreseeable aeronautical 
activities. Approval of this action will allow for the granting of the 
substitute water line easement consisting of 0.198 acres to the 
Millcreek Township Water and Sewer Authority for the replacement water 
main.

(5) Release of Land for Replacement Gas Line Easement--Net Change 0.00 
Acres

    The existing and replacement easement are located at Erie 
International Airport (ERI) in Millcreek Township, Erie County, PA. The 
existing easement is located along the west side of Asbury Road and is 
situated on Parcels 4 and 5 of the airport property on County Index No. 
(33) 039-147.00-001.00. This replacement gas line easement will provide 
a replacement utility easement for National Fuel Gas (NGS) to 
construct, inspect, maintain, repair and reconstruct a gas line utility 
along Asbury Road. The existing utility easement is currently located 
on airport property. Asbury Road is being widened by PennDOT to 
accommodate additional traffic volume related to increased commercial 
development in the vicinity of the airport. As part of the roadway 
project, a new replacement gas line utility will need to be constructed 
outside the limits of the widened Asbury Road. This easement will 
provide a substitute Right-of-Way Easement for locating the replacement 
National Fuel Gas line. This easement area is not needed for 
aeronautical use and its use as a replacement utility easement does not 
limit or restrict the use of dedicated airport land for current or 
foreseeable aeronautical activities. Approval of this action will allow 
for the granting of of the substitute Gas Line easement to National 
Fuel Gas (NFG) for installing the relocated replacement gas line.

Section 47125(a) of Title 49 U.S.C.
    The following is a brief overview of the request:
    The Erie International Airport (ERI) has requested the sale of 
Right-of-Way and easements of airport property, along the airport's 
western boundary with Asbury Rd. The Erie Regional Airport Authority 
(ERAA), as owner of the Erie International Airport (ERI), have been 
approached by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) 
with a request for Right-of-way, drainage, construction and utility 
easement acquisition to support a State roadway widening project of 
Asbury Road. As part of this roadway widening project, PennDOT is 
required to obtain additional Right-of-Way on the west side of Asbury 
Road to construct and maintain additional roadway and drainage 
facilities. Drainage easements will also be needed for the maintenance 
of the drainage facilities outside the PennDOT Right-of-Way. Temporary 
construction easements will be needed for the connection of existing 
driveways and drainage facilities to the new roadway construction. A 
substitute utility easement needs to be granted to The Millcreek Water 
and Sewer Authority for the relocation of the existing water main, 
which will need to be brought outside the widened Asbury Road. In 
addition, National Fuel Gas (NFG) is requesting a permanent easement to 
relocate and maintain a replacement gas line. The current NFG gas line 
is located on airport property within an existing easement. The
