$50M Taxiway Extension Project Complete at MSY

NEW ORLEANS — On Nov. 28, officials from the City of New Orleans, the New Orleans Aviation Board and the Federal Aviation Administration will celebrate the completion of the $50.8 million taxiway extension project at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. The infrastructure enhancement project, funded by the FAA’s Airport Improvement Program grants, was designed to enhance safety, reduce conflicts and optimize taxiway occupancy.

“The primary purpose of the project was to extend the airport’s Taxiway G to the west of its current location,” said an airport spokesperson in a press release. “With the opening of the new terminal north of Runway 11/29, Taxiway G needed to be extended to better accommodate the traffic that uses Runway 11/29, specifically the Runway 29 Approach where aircraft will back taxi down Taxiway G to the new terminal.”

The project also includes the installation of lighting and signage for all new pavements.
