Pearson Airfield Environmental Assessment

Vancouver, WA


Century West assisted the City of Auburn in their efforts to extend Runway 16-34, the Airport’s sole runway. Century West’s role began during the Master Plan that was completed in 2015 and identified a need for a runway extension on both runway ends. Being constrained in an urban environment, the Airport would have to use declared distances to hold the existing runway threshold locations. Century West performed the Environmental Assessment for the runway extension in 2017; however, the FAA required additional documentation to support the runway extension. Through an additional planning exercise, the Century West team was able to demonstrate the need for the runway extension that allowed the FAA to approve the project and begin design. The design of the project took place in 2019, and the project will be bid in summer 2019 with construction scheduled for 2020. Century West was able to make the case to the FAA that the project is warranted and was able to justify the use of declared distances on the runway project. Century West recently completed the runway extension design and the project is out for bid.
