Master plan for Rhode Island’s main airport to be updated

April 6, 2019

WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — The master plan for Rhode Island’s main airport will be updated for the first time since 2002.

The Rhode Island Airport Corporation says the update is required by the Federal Aviation Administration and no runway lengthening or realignment is under consideration for T.F. Green Airport in Warwick.

The quasi-public agency says the update will cost approximately $1.3 million.

The FAA wants airports to have a master plan to provide the framework for future development.

The airport corporation says that passenger growth at T. F. Green will ultimately determine whether there will be any development projects at the airport. The corporation’s board of directors authorized C&S Companies of Syracuse, New York to lead the master plan effort.

There will be open houses and public workshops for community input.
