Project Description

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport

Client: City of Cleveland

L&B was contracted to prepare a new Airport Master Plan and Airport Layout Plan (ALP) for the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE). L&B had successfully completed the previous CLE Master Plan, which eliminated runway intersections, increased separation between the parallel runways, and lengthened the longest runway to accommodate existing and forecast demand.

By comparison, this Master Plan focused on the passenger terminal, aviation infrastructure, and support facilities to ensure the size and design met the existing and future needs of the region and the airfield.

The 2012 Master Plan carefully evaluated the existing and future needs of the airport users to maximize the utility of the existing infrastructure and identify short and long-term opportunities to create cost effective improvements addressing the need to diversify the airport’s economic revenue base while continuing to provide economic benefit to the Cleveland region.
