RTA Priority: Identify funding solutions to implement the approved RDU 2040 Master Plan

The RDU Vision2040 Master Plan for the next 25 years guides the growth of our hometown international airport.

A sustainable funding mechanism is required to implement the plan and complete essential improvements including reconstructing our primary runway “5L-23R”. RDU has a scalable and effective plan for expansion, but there is a significant funding gap that will require new and innovative revenue options to resolve.

Current Efforts

  • RTA is highlighting the positive economic and tax impact of RDU Airport on our region and state and the need to fund the 2040 Master Plan
  • RTA is reviewing the approved Vision2040 RDU Master Plan as well as land use development considerations.

Recent Successes

  • The RDU Airport Authority approved the preferred RDU Master Plan Oct. 2016
  • RDU launches 18-month Master Plan study and public workshops June 2015
