Environmental Process for Yellowstone Airport Terminal Project

YELLOWSTONE, Montana - (August 30, 2019) - The Montana Department of
Transportation - Aeronautics Division (MDT), as Sponsor of the
Yellowstone Airport, under grant(s) from the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA), is initiating an Environmental Assessment (EA)
for the evaluation of proposed project improvement impacts to
construct a new terminal at the airport.  The proposed project will
entail the proposed construction of a new terminal, demolition of the
existing terminal, installation of a new beacon, expansion of on
airport road/parking lot improvements, rehabilitation of the airport
access road, and extension of Town of West Yellowstone water /
sanitary sewer infrastructure to airport facilities, among other
ancillary improvements.  

MDT would like to invite the public to an
informational meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, September 16th, at the
Yellowstone Airport ARFF Building (Fire Station) at 629 Yellowstone

categories that will be evaluated.  A question and answer session
will follow, and public comments will be received.  It is the desire
of the Sponsor and FAA to facilitate public involvement as soon as
possible in the process in order to consider public comment in the
evaluation for the EA.

the future is partnering with the community. Montana Department of
