Document Description
The proposed project is the Sacramento International Airport (SMF) Master Plan Update. The Master Plan Update revises the existing program for modifications of existing facilities and development of new facilities at SMF through the year 2040. The Master Plan addresses all aspects of the airport including the airfield, terminals and related passenger services, cargo, general aviation (GA), airport support, airport access and commercial development. The update largely consists of revisions to proposed airport projects and facilities based on revised aviation forecasts. The update looks at previously identified projects and projected growth at SMF. Many of the updates center on the timing of the project (planning phase) along with minor changes to locations and size of facilities. A direct comparison of the Master Plan and MPU facilities and planning phasing are presented in Table PD-1 and MPU exhibits are presented in Plate PD-3 through 7; notable changes are highlighted below: • Removal of the third runway and taxiway system; • Relocating the economy parking lot from south of I-5 to north of I-5, east of Airport Boulevard; • Changing the economy parking lot south of I-5 to commercial uses and moving it to PAL 4; • Changing the location of Elkhorn Boulevard extension; • Construction of a third Concourse, adjacent to Concourse B; • Construction of new airline maintenance, rehabilitation and overall MRO facilities; • Construction of a new consolidated rental car facility; • Revising the acreage, location and phasing of the commercial development proposed north of I-5; and • Movement of the new cargo building and apron from the southwest side to the north airfield, east of Runway 16R and increasing the size from 226k thousand square feet (kft2) to 950kft2. -The Cargo Facility is comprised of three buildings (sortation building, a ground crew building, and an equipment maintenance building), associated parking, and a taxilane on 192 acres on the north side of the airport (Plate PD-8). As shown on the conceptual plan, the three buildings would total 950,000 square feet, have 13 aircraft parking spacesd, 1,314 parking spaces, and 343 trailer parking spaces. Access to the project site is provided on Earhart Drive from West Elverta Road. Intersection improvements for Earhart Drive and West Elverta Road, which include widening and signalization, are proposed as part of this project
