A LOOK AT RUNWAY SAFETY CONSTRAINTS AT PHL
By The Associated Press
Eleven major airports face significant hurdles to meeting federal standards for safety areas around runways, according to a report by the Transportation Department's Office of Inspector General.
Philadelphia International Airport. Two runway safety areas are inadequate. The airport is constrained by two rivers, an interstate highway, a dredge disposal site and an industrial area. A draft environmental review is expected this year on one improvement project, but the airport still needs to reach an agreement on how to mitigate damage to wetlands to move forward on the second runway safety area.
