Meeting Date:           November 27, 2006

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of a Joint Participation Agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for funding of the design and engineering of the Runway 13/31 Extension Project at Leesburg International Airport

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

 

Staff recommends approval of the Joint Participation Agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for funding of the design and engineering of the Runway 13/31 Extension Project.

 

Analysis:

 

Runway 13/31 at Leesburg International Airport is currently 5,000 feet long.  Some aircraft find that when departing during periods of high temperature they cannot take as much fuel on board due the short length of the main runway (R-13/31).  In addition, the present runway length leaves little or no safety margin in the event of a power failure and/or mechanical failure.  Staff proposes to lengthen Runway 13/31 by a total of 1,300 feet.  The west end (R-13) will be extended by 300 feet.  The east end (R-31) will be extended by 1,000 feet.

 

The total cost of the design portion of this project will be $710,984.00.  The cost of this project will be shared by the FAA (95%), the Florida Department of Transportation (2.5%) and the City (2.5%).  The attached Joint Participation Agreement from FDOT provides for funding up to the amount of $18,710. 

 

Options:

1.  Approval of the Joint Participation Agreement with FDOT

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

 

This project is budgeted in the current year for $6,257,640.00.   The cost for engineering and design associated with this JPA is $710,984.22.
