Attend the workshop and learn about the ABIA Master Plan.
AUSTIN, TEXAS – The third in a series of four public workshops will be held to gather comments on the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) 2040 Master Plan on June 7. The master plan is intended to address an anticipated doubling of passenger traffic in and out of ABIA within the next 20 years. In 2017, more than 13.88 million people traveled through the Austin airport.
At the workshop, public feedback is requested on the proposed alternatives for new terminal spaces, ways to relieve congestion and improve mobility on the airport’s campus and to learn about future runway opportunities. Though an additional runway is not an immediate need, it is in the airport's interest to plan for a third runway to meet future growth.
“We invite input from our customers and the general public. This is a crucial meeting for public input as we solidify the ideas and growth plans for the airport,” says Lyn Estabrook, Project Management Supervisor at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. “People enjoy and respect that our airport feels like Austin; everything from the music to the food to the atmosphere within the terminal, and we want to ensure that our new plans continue to make ABIA the airport of choice for Central Texas.”
The public meeting will be open house format featuring visual boards allowing guests to move freely through the room. ABIA staff, consultants, planners and engineers from the Master Plan team will be available to answer questions and record feedback as it arises.
