Alexandria International Airport (AEX) contracts with URS Corporation to perform FAA mandated update of Noise Exposure Maps

Alexandria International Airport moves forward to contract with URS Corporation to perform FAA mandated update of Noise Exposure Maps.  AEX has been implementing a noise mitigation program for several years now.  The Federal Aviation Administration requires an update of the noise exposure maps on a regular basis.  URS helped the airport develop and implement its current Noise Mitigation Program.  That program has been successful in capturing over $30 million for our community to mitigate noise impacts from operation of aircraft.  An updated map will serve as the basis for future actions regarding the AEX Noise Mitigation Program.  The mapping effort will be funded by the FAA and State of Louisiana Aviation Trust Fund.
