SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA as lead agency, along with the 
United States Air Force, as a cooperating agency on behalf of the 
United States Air Force and the National Guard Bureau, have completed 
and are publishing a Record of Decision (ROD) for proposed improvements 
and various land transactions identified at TUS. The ROD was prepared

    The FAA published its Final EIS for these proposed improvements on

National Environmental Policy Act of 1969; the Council of Environmental 
Quality implementing regulations, 40 CFR parts 1500-1508, FAA Order

environmental impacts of the Airfield Safety Enhancement Project 
(ASEP), as well as the No Action Alternative where the FAA would make 
no improvements at TUS.
    In the Final EIS, the FAA identified the ASEP as the preferred 
alternative in meeting the purpose and need for enhancement of safety 
at TUS. The ASEP includes relocation of Runway 11R/29L (proposed to be 
10,996 feet long by 150 feet wide); the demolition of the existing 
Runway 11R/29L; the construction of a new center parallel and 
connecting taxiway system; acquisition of land for the runway object-
free area, runway safety area, and the runway protection zone from Air 
Force Plant (AFP) 44. The ASEP also includes relocation of navigational 
aids and development and/or modification of associated arrival and 
departure procedures for the relocated runway. The ASEP also includes 
demolition of 12 Earth Covered Magazines (ECMs) on AFP 44 and their 
replacement elsewhere on AFP 44. The ASEP also includes both connected 
and similar land transfer actions from the Tucson Airport Authority 
(TAA) to the USAF for land at AFP 44; and another parcel of airport 
land, on behalf of the National Guard Bureau, for construction of a
