Projects & Programs
Lafayette Airport Commission Construction Projects
The existing Taxiway Foxtrot is 45 feet wide and doglegs to the left to connect to the North General Aviation apron. The project seeks to widen the taxiway to 75 feet and completely replace the existing asphalt surface with concrete. Furthermore, the dogleg portion will be removed to straighten the taxiway to connect to Taxiway Lima. This correction will make land available for new development. This project will also provide additional ingress and egress routes for the larger aircraft servicing the airport. The project is currently being developed by airport staff and will be advertised for design in 2014.
