Abstract : The Albuquerque Aviation Department proposes to lease approximately 70 acres of Air Force property at Kirtland Air Force Base (KAFB), New Mexico to make improvements to the Albuquerque International Airport (AIA). The proposed improvements consist of reconstructing and extending Taxiway E and constructing a new taxiway, AA. An existing taxiway, A, will be removed and reconstructed upon completion of Taxiway E. Lighting and drainage improvements which comply with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards are part of the proposed project. The AIA is a joint-use facility owned by the City of Albuquerque that serves KAFB and commercial carriers. This Environmental Assessment (EA) will be used by the Air Force to decide whether to grant a 20-year lease to the AIA for widening and extending taxiways onto Air Force property. This EA describes and evaluates the potential environmental impacts associated with the construction and operations of Taxiways A,AA, and E on Air Force land use, aircraft operations, and environmental components (Air quality, noise, water resources, biological resources, cultural resources, socioeconomics, transportation, environmental management). This EA also identifies and evaluates impact associated with relocating Base Operations at each of four alternative sites
