The Rhode Island Airport Corporation, Rhode Island T.F. Green International Airport and Stantec Consulting Services Inc. have compiled a Final Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate potential environmental impacts associated with proposed safety improvement projects planned for T.F. Green Airport located in Warwick, RI. The proposed project subject to this EA includes acquiring avigation easements to remove trees located off airport property that are obstructing Runway 5-23 airspace.

Based on this determination, the FAA will either issue a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) or the agency will require additional review to further analyze the proposed project and associated impacts.
