|The airport is somewhat unique in that it is bordered by ocean to the north and the west and residential development to the east and the south.Noise sensitive residential development occurs directly adjacent to the airport
boundary on the east side. To the south, noise sensitive residential development
occurs within 1/4 mile or less from the boundary and at one point, homes are within 1/2 mile from the end of runway 25L.The state of Alaska is exempt from the Stage 2 phaseout under the Airport Noise Capacity Act of 1990.
The Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport Master Plan Update will strategically position the Airport for the future by maximizing operational efficiency and business effectiveness, as well as maximizing property availability for aviation development through efficient planning. The Master Plan Update was initiated in June 2012 and is anticipated to conclude approximately 18 months later in December 2013. The Master Plan Update will include a robust public and stakeholder involvement program. The Airport has entered into a contract with the firm Reynolds Smith and Hills, Inc. (RS&H) to lead this effort.
